Behaviour Regulation at Parson Street Primary School
Parson Street Primary School is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same. Through the creation of an empowered learning community, we aim to foster connection and respect where all are valued and lives flourish.
We are committed to ensuring the safety and welfare of all pupils and believe it is the responsibility of the whole school community to support the development of a safe, caring and supportive ethos.
Through the explicit teaching of behaviours for learning, pupils learn to follow their moral compass; helping them to become good citizens and take advantage of the opportunities offered in the curriculum as they become secure, confident and independent learners.
Our policy outlines the behaviour we expect at all times. Pupils in our school follow three simple rules:
We are an inclusive school and act swiftly to deal with discrimination of any sort. We have a clear, comprehensive, Anti-Bullying Policy, understood by all, which partners this Behaviour Policy. Our legal duties (under the Equality Act 2010) are detailed in the Safeguarding Policy and made known to all staff. Measures to protect pupils from bullying and discrimination because of gender, race, ability, sexual orientation, or background are also detailed in the Safeguarding Policy and regularly monitored for their effective implementation.
At Parson Street Primary School, we strive for
All adults to be responsive to the changing needs of our children
All children to possess the tools to self-regulate when faced with big feelings.
All children to actively reflect on their choices and their learning
All adults to be creative in engaging children and supporting behaviour
All children to feel positively about coming to school
Barriers to be reduced so that children feel they can be successful
All practices to be inclusive and meet the needs of our children
Children, parents and teachers to have an effective support network.
As a school, we know that Culture is vital in establishing an effective behaviour system. At Parson Street, our behaviour strategies and polices are routed in the understanding that children are not born knowing how to behave; it is something that must be taught.
All staff at Parson Street Primary are committed to giving every child that attends the school the best chance of success irrespective of background, prior attainment or SEND. To allow for this to happen, classrooms at Parson Street Primary are entirely disruption free; allowing teachers their right to teach and pupils their right to learn.
At Parson Street, we understand the importance of first impressions. We take pride in our appearance with our smart uniform and take meticulous care of our school environment. Alongside our unapologetically high standards, we also have a key role in ensuring our pupils are happy and safe at school.
Our vision does not come at the cost of our children’s wellbeing. All staff are aware of the importance of promoting pupil welfare, and we maintain a department of non-teaching staff to support pupils with mental health and wellbeing.
We also understand that for some children, following our behaviour expectations are beyond their current developmental level. In this case, these children will have access to bespoke positive behaviour plans, which may include carefully targeted reasonable adjustments to reinforce positive behaviour.
If you have concerns about children's behaviour, Class Teachers are always your first port-of-call. Should these concerns persist, please arrange a meeting with Miss Beech (Behaviour Lead) or Mr Munro (Headteacher).
