Promoting Excellent Behaviour
We recognise that the values we promote within the school play an important part in the spiritual, moral and social development of the children for whom we hold a responsibility. These values include: Resilience, Independence, Ambition and Achievement. We also encourage and support our pupils in developing their skills to care, respect, be honest and have concern for oneself and others, care and respect for property and for the environment.
Whilst values are sometimes explicitly expressed, they are more often implicit in the ways we behave ourselves and in the ways we expect others around us to behave. For this reason it is important to provide clear guidelines for a consistent and coherent approach to behaviour and discipline within the school.
Our behaviour strategy is aimed at improving educational outcomes for all pupils by promoting and supporting their engagement in education. We aim to develop a more positive focus on improving children’s engagement, motivation and well-being.
We believe that self-esteem affects all thinking and behaviour and impacts on learning and performance. We aim to provide positive everyday experiences so that our children are self-confident and secure, with a strong sense of belonging, and so more likely to reach their full potential.
Aims and expectations
It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all.
The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a considerate way towards others.
We treat all children fairly and help children grow in a safe and secure environment to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.
Bow school rewards good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and cooperation.
We have an agreed School Code for the school community.
