This policy is the statement of principles, aims and strategies for the positive management of behaviour at South Moreton Primary School.



General Principles


Good behaviour is an essential condition for effective teaching and learning to take place. At South Moreton School, we believe that pupils and staff have the right to work in an environment that is safe, friendly, peaceful and fair. Good behaviour must be carefully developed and supported. High self esteem promotes good behaviour, effective learning and positive relationships. The best results, in terms of promoting good behaviour arise from emphasising potential, rewarding success and giving praise for effort and achievement, rather than focusing on shortcomings and failure. Through the example of the adults who care for them at school and through well planned and stimulating learning opportunities, we believe that children will accept challenges in learning and develop self discipline. It is the responsibility of parents to share with the school in helping their children to behave well. All parents are required to sign the Home School Agreement.


We believe good behaviour means that everyone in school is:
