Raysfield Schools are welcoming, friendly places where positive attitudes towards good behaviour and learning are encouraged. Children are given opportunities to acquire self-discipline and high standards of conduct in a safe, secure environment.
Children are taught positive behaviour through our Happy School Plan (Infants) and Raysfield Go For It Goals (Juniors), the main emphasis will be on positive aspects of praise and reward. Our Happy School Plan and Raysfield Go For It Goals is in place and the children are taught the key aspects through PHSE lessons, circle times and school assemblies. The Happy School Plan and Raysfield Go For It Goals is prominently displayed in all classrooms and is used to reinforce the behaviour policy. Sanctions are displayed in classrooms alongside the Happy School Plan and Raysfield Go For It Goals.
In class learning situations there will be a good working atmosphere, making it possible for everyone to benefit from the learning situation. The movement of children and adults around the school should be in a calm, quiet and orderly manner, showing proper respect for others. In the school buildings there should never be any running, pushing or shouting. In crowded areas (Raysfield Junior School) stairs, corridors, everyone should keep to the left.
Verbal communication should be in a calm and polite manner, with proper emphasis on courtesy and respect for feelings of others and their point of view. Support for the behaviour policy by parents is essential for it to work effectively. Parents and children are asked to sign the “Home/school agreement” agreeing to support the implementation of the policy. Every adult in school has a responsibility to set an example of the highest standard.
