1. Describe the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour
The purpose of school policies on behaviour are:
• Captures the values and beliefs of the school
• Sets out expectations of behaviour
• Indicates how good behaviour will be developed and encouraged • Sets out how inappropriate behaviour will be addressed
• Promotes a consistent and shared approach for the whole school community
Our school ethos and value is maintaining high standards of behaviour, high expectations upheld in a sympathetic atmosphere. The school wants children to learn to take responsibility for their own actions and behave well at school because it enhances educational and social opportunities, and promote calm happy working environment in which children feel safe and secure.
All the children in our school are instructed to keep within the school rules so that they know what is expected of them. After registration the teacher explains the school rules to them, the teacher explains that they are not allowed to run in the corridors, they have to use their inside voices, to follow instructions and to keep their hands and feet to themselves and also to hold the door open for people behind them and to treat one another with respect.

They are usually low-level disagreements and after a while children learn how to deal with them for themselves. It is our school policy to support children as they learn this process, not to deny them help if they want it, but to give them as much opportunity to sort out their problems for themselves without taking over and doing it for them.
