 Behaviour Regulation at Parson Street Primary School


Parson Street Primary School is committed to the creation of an empowered learning community which fosters connection and respect and where all are valued and lives flourish. We are an inclusive school that respects the equal opportunities of people of every age, disability, gender, gender identity, race and nationality, religion and belief, sexual orientation, including those who are pregnant, married or in a civil partnership. We do not accept prejudice in any form. This is embodied in our vision statement, “Live and Learn.”


We value all learning, whether inside or outside of the classroom, and understand positive behaviour as central to this. We believe that by fostering strong professional relationships, we are able to set and maintain high standards for personal conduct and support both children and adults to make sense of their own experiences and take responsibility for their actions.


Our approach aims to:

  • Ensure that all learners are treated with a fair, respectful and consistent approach. Being fair is about everyone getting what they need (equity) rather than all being treated the same (equality).
  • Create a culture of exceptional behaviour that enacts the School’s Core Values of: compassion; courage; justice; wisdom; hope; respect; responsibility and integrity. We seek to focus on empathetic and nurturing adult responses to behaviour that focusing on the feelings, unmet needs and emotions that are being communicated rather than the behaviour itself. 
  • Establish a framework for staff, which focuses on maintaining clear boundaries, high expectations and focusing on positive recognition. We seek to follow predictable routines, expectations and responses to behaviour so that children feel safe. These are differentiated according to need. We seek to focus on praising desired behaviours rather than correcting unwanted ones, being specific and descriptive in our feedback.
  • Promote strong nurturing positive relationships between staff, children and parents and use this to support learners in managing their behaviour and developing an understanding and responsibility for the consequences of it. 


For more information about how we intend to implement this approach please see our Behaviour Regulation Policy - available to download below and from the policies page.

Core Values, Restorative Practice, 3 Simple Rules, Behaviour Blueprint and Classroom Support Procedure

Our school's approach to promoting positive behaviour is summarised in our Behaviour Blueprint.

Where children's behaviour is not Ready, Respectful or Safe, we follow a Classroom Support Procedure and always seek to give children the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions, reflect on their behaviour, repair and restore their relationships. 


Class Teachers should be able to address any concerns regarding behaviour in the first instance. However, should you have any questions about our approach to managing behaviour and promoting self-regulation and pupil welfare, please do not hesitate to contact our Assistant Headteacher (responsible for Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare) - Miss Beech.  Please also seek support from Miss Beech, Mr Huxley or the appropriate Team Leader if you wish to discuss things further.

We are an 'Anti-Bullying' School. We take instances of bullying very seriously. To demonstrate our commitment, the whole school has agreed to the Anti-Bullying Promise below. We also take part annually in Anti-Bullying Week. This year Anti-Bullying Week falls on 15th November - 19th November. This year, ‘One Kind Word’ has been chosen as the theme of Anti-Bullying Week. Kindness is more important today than it has ever been. The isolation of the last year has underlined how little acts of consideration can break down barriers and brighten the lives of the people around us. 


We are starting the week with an Odd Socks Day on Monday. There’s a serious message behind the fun: let’s pull on odd socks to show we’re ALL unique and different, and let’s be kind to each other and respect each other’s individuality.


Throughout the week, pupils will conduct kindness surveys which will inform the work of School Council during the academic year. We will learn about Online Bullying and how to show kindness and be better friends. We will also learn about how bulling is responded to at Parson Street Primary School and how pupils can take responsibility for helping to stop bullying and build our kind culture.


If you, or someone you know, is being bullied - either at school or online - then please make sure you tell a trusted adult in school so that we can make it stop.  Everyone deserves to feel safe and happy.
