Parents  »  Behaviour

Our behaviour policy is designed to:
  • Promote a positive climate and learning culture within school
  • Provide a safe school environment for all
  • Develop an understanding of what appropriate behaviours are
  • Define a framework for rewarding success and de-escalating negative behaviours
  • Promote self-esteem, self-regulation and positive relationships with all staff members
  • Involve parents/carers, pupils and staff in the application of this policy and establish strong communication
The expectation of children is that they will follow the Oakhill Promise:
  • Be Safe
  • Be Honest
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be the best that YOU can be

The expectation of adults is that they will:
  • Consistently apply the Behaviour Policy fairly, without favour and actively model appropriate behaviours
  • Encourage, praise and listen to children
  • Establish a culture of positive rewards whilst monitoring a consistent approach across school
  • Celebrate positive behaviour and instil a sense of pride in those pupils achieving this
  • Have high expectations of children’s attitudes to learning, play and transitions through school
  • Collaborate with team members in order to uphold and maintain high standards of behaviour at all times
  • Ensure that classroom practice fosters cooperation and collaboration (learning by doing, rather than learning by do not).
  • Keep a record of all incidents of serious or gross misconduct (see Appendix 1) and ensure that the Head teacher and parents/carers are informed of any such incidents within that same day.
  • Consistently implement the language of choice to de-escalate situations and incidents (see Appendix 2).
  • Develop and maintain Individual Behaviour Plans for pupils who present consistently unacceptable behaviours.
  • Communicate effectively with parents/carers
