Describe the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people's positive behaviour.
St Oswald's Catholic Primary School aim to create an environment which encourages and reinforces good behaviour and positive attitudes, and this is done through promoting the school 'Behaviour Policy'. Our school maintains a consistent approach to behaviour at all times and by all members of the school community.
Aims of the behaviour policy:
To promote a positive ethos in the school through encouraging a shared understanding of the values which underpin our school ethos To create a consistent environment that expects, encourages and recognises good behaviour and one in which everyone feels happy and safe To help pupils develop self-respect, self-control and accountability for their own behaviour To further promote self-esteem through success, positive relationships and awareness of how our behaviour impacts on ourself and others To encourage the partnership between home and school.
Our school is is an inclusive school and aims for every member of the school community to feel valued and respected. Therefore, the behaviour policy is designed to encourage the way in which all members, pupils, staff, parents and governors and work together in a mutually supportive way. Our behaviour policy focuses on positive behaviour management, promoted and supported in the following ways:

Effective classroom management
Whole school behaviour management plan
Playtime and lunchtime provision
Personalised programmes/ support from outside agencies
The staff have responsibilities in the school to ensure positive behaviour is promoted and these are as follows:

We will show respect by looking after ourselves, others and school property. We will listen and follow adult instructions.
At the start of the school year, classes will negotiate and agree a small number of additional rules as part of a class charter or code of conduct, in order to promote a positive and safe learning environment. All rules are clearly displayed in the classroom and referred to regularly.
Children are expected to follow the school rules and classroom codes of conduct, showing respect for the rights and needs of all adults and other children in our school community. The school council will play an important role in communicating and reviewing aspects of the behaviour policy.
Parents have a vital role to play in their children’s education – supporting their child’s learning and co-operating with the school. Our school is very conscious of the importance of good communication between home and school. The school aims to work collaboratively with parents, so children receive consistent...
