Oakwood Primary School is a caring community, whose values are built on honesty, mutual respect, consideration and responsibility. It follows that acceptable standards of behaviour are those that reflect these values. Effective teaching and learning for all can only take place in a well-ordered, safe environment. This policy has been devised to ensure that the environment provided for children at Oakwood Primary School enables them to benefit from the educational opportunities offered to them. The behaviour policy is the result of consultation with pupils, parents, governors and staff. It reflects current practice within the school. Children have contributed to the behaviour policy through class discussions and through PSHE lessons.
We believe that clear behaviour expectations with appropriate rewards and consequences are fundamental to children achieving their best at school and its fair and consistent implementation is the responsibility of all staff. We also acknowledge the role that we play in supporting the mental health and well-being of children and have developed whole school strategies as well as bespoke approaches to meet particular needs.
