All children have a right to come to school that is safe and secure where everyone is caring and considerate, have self respect for others, respect for property and the environment.
The school has a code of conduct to ensure all pupils, parents and carers know what is expected of pupils within school.
The school has a behaviour policy outlining how the school deals with inappropriate behaviour and how it rewards good behaviour.
The policy defines who is responsible for dealing with inappropriate behaviour and when it should be referred to the head teacher, families and outside agencies.
Inappropriate behaviour can be-:

* Not completing homework
* Not completing tasks within the classroom
* Fidgeting all the time
* Spitting, hitting out,
* Being cheeky, talking back at staff
The Elton report, ‘Discipline in schools’ (1989) says that there should be a balanced system of reward and punishment within a positive community atmosphere. A common purpose on behalf of everyone needs to be preserved so that all may enjoy courteous, thoughtful, considerate behaviour shown by everyone’.
Sanctions will be imposed for children who repeat serious forms of inappropriate behaviour that endangers themselves or/and other. Discuss how to improve their behaviour. * Keeping children in at play time and discuss the behaviour. * Apologies need to be made and meetings make take place to discuss any further action that is needed.

* Spoken warning.
* Second warning will be given reminding the child the consequence to their behaviour. * Time out from their group.
* Being seen by the head teacher.
* A letter to arrange a meeting with parents/carer.
* Possible exclusion

Behaviour policy includes dealing with bullying.
Anti-bullying policy is all schools.
