Our pupils are extremely well behaved and we praise children for making good or better choices in school. We work closely with parents and stakeholders to ensure as much consistency as possible is given to all pupils.
Our school rules are based upon the simple principles of consideration and respect for others and self. They are known as 'Golden Rules' and are displayed prominently throughout the school (also available below). We encourage good discipline by praising and rewarding children.
SCHOOL STAR CHART
We celebrate and commend good choices for behaviour in school and the whole school uses a star chart to celebrate children's successes. Where misbehaviour does take place, children receive a time out to think about how to improve their choices and apologise. The Headteacher has the right to exercise professional judgement in the exclusion of pupils.
The school’s behaviour policy can be viewed in the policies section of our school website with further information. Central in our drive to promote wellbeing is celebrating positive choices.
At Woodlands Infant School we believe that it is paramount to teach children to respect everyone regardless of their race, religion, gender or circumstances. Our behavioural expectations around this can be found in our Behaviour policy and Equality Information and Objectives in Our School- Policies. It is important to note that our pupils and families embrace this and attitudes and behaviours around anti-bullying are very positive and well received.
We also have Headteacher's tea with Mrs Wood each half-term. A child is chosen from each class to attend a special assembly, where parents/carers are invited. They then have afternoon tea celebrating examples of work and discussing their achievements during the term. Children receive a 'wow' badge to wear with pride for attendance. Pupils are chosen who model 'being the best me I can be' during the half-term.
