At Netley Abbey Infant School we believe that one of our prime responsibilities is to prepare pupils for life and to give them strategies to manage their own behaviour successfully and to make relationships with others. This is a major focus for teaching and learning and is an integral part of our ethos. Therefore we promote an approach of positive behaviour management.
We promote the values of ‘Be safe, Be kind and Be happy’ to allow us to CLIC. Through our CLIC values the children will learn how to become valuable members of the community with outstanding communication skills, can keep themselves and others healthy and develop a love of learning. Our learning characters will support the children along their journey teaching them the skills of resilience and team work creating respectful attitudes. We will achieve this philosophy through exciting learning adventures that inspire children to become fully engaged, naturally inquisitive and seek knowledge.
Daily life at Netley Abbey Infant School is underpinned by an ethos of mutual respect. In order to achieve this all members of the staff community, pupils, staff, parents and governors shall aim to:
- Have consistency across the school in all practice and procedures.
- Create a culture of positive engagement for learning.
- Ensure that all pupils are treated fairly and shown respect to promote good relationships.
- Recognise that all behaviour is a form of communication.
- Help pupils take control over, and self -regulate, their behaviour and be responsible for the consequences of it.
- Give pupils minimal attention for poor behaviour by praising expected behaviour.
- Build a community which embodies our philosophy and is based on the principles of ‘Be safe, Be kind, Be happy’ to help us to CLIC.
- Promote community cohesion through positive relationships.
We seek to create a caring, calm learning environment by:
- Recognising and promoting behavioural norms.
- Catching children making the right choices
- Positively reinforcing behavioural norms.
- Promoting self-esteem and self-discipline.
- Teaching appropriate behaviours through positive interventions.
- Ensuring equality and fairness of treatment for all.
- Providing a safe environment, free from disruption, violence, bullying and any form of harassment.
All pupils and members of staff have the right to work in an environment that is safe, calm, happy and purposeful and where the rights of the individual are respected.
