Our School Rules
The school aims to:
• Provide a consistent approach to behaviour management
• Define what we consider to be unacceptable behaviour, including bullying
• Outline how pupils are expected to behave
• Summarise the roles and responsibilities of different people in the school community with regards to behaviour management
• Outline our system of rewards and sanctions
Schools and teachers have an important role to play in helping children both prepare and recover from a public health emergency. Commitment to keeping the health and safety of school is important and an essential part of our input is supporting children and their families.
This pupil code of conduct will accompany the behaviour policy that exists for Bentley High Street Primary School. It has been temporarily revised to take into consideration expectations on all pupils to keep each other safe and reduce the spread of transmission.
The school cannot guarantee that school adults will not touch children. If there is a medical or safety emergency then children may need to be touched to ensure their safety or the safety of others, but this should be a last resort.
In and out of school you should always act with kindness and try to uphold our school values:
- We focus on learning
- We care for others
- We always show respect
- We enjoy teamwork
- We are inclusive
- We enjoy school life
- We trust all members of our school community
- We show bravery in everything we do
What will happen if you break a rule in the classroom?
Please remember that these are guidelines only and that teachers may choose to deal with situations differently so that they can personalise steps to the needs of you and the class. If you show improved behaviour a teacher may remove faces from against your name.
Step 1: You will be given a verbal reminder- this means that the adult will remind you of the rules.
Step 2: You will be given a verbal warning- this means that the adult will write your name somewhere visible.
Step 3: You will be given support- this means that an adult will help you to focus. You may be asked to move or to sit near an adult.
Step 4: You will be given 2 more chances- if you continue to break the class rules, ticks will be placed against your name on a board
Step 5: You will be given time out- When you have received 2 ticks, an adult will asks you to have time out. You may have to go and speak to another member of staff and your parents may be told about the incident. You may have to spend your break or dinner time completing the work that you have missed or another appropriate sanction will be put in place.
