Behaviour Principles

The school governors have reviewed the published statement of behaviour principles, these support our school ethos and underpin the behaviour policies that we have in school. The proposed principles are below. If you have any comments you would like to make with regard to these, please complete the form below before 2nd November 2020.

Proposed revision to our ”Behaviour Principles”

  • everyone on site at Shelton Junior School has the right to feel safe, valued and respected, free from any feeling of threat, discrimination or prejudice of any kind, and free from the disruption of others
  • all adults are expected to set the highest standards of reasonable, respectful, tolerant and calm behaviour
  • the focus should always be on rewarding children’s good behaviour, with rewards and sanctions being consistently applied, and only resorting to the use of reasonable force or exclusion in the most extreme of circumstances
  • families should expect, and be expected, to be involved in the more significant behaviour incidents, to foster a shared responsibility and good relations between the school and children’s home life, and be aware of and involved in decisions where continued bad behaviour will lead to other agencies becoming involved
  • the school will equally support anyone who is accused of perpetrating, or being the victim of incidents of bad behaviour
  • these Principles although focusing primarily on incidents / issues at school, also apply where the school’s reputation may be at risk beyond the school gates, off site
  • the school’s Behaviour Policy must make clear which items are banned from school, under what circumstances a pupil might expect to be searched, and emphasise that violence will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
