Behaviour and Discipline

Behaviour and Discipline

At The Academy at St. James, we have high expectations of good behaviour and manners in school and are concerned with promoting mutual respect and understanding, so vital for harmony in our society.  Restorative practice is a characteristic of all exchanges between adults and children.

Our Behaviour Policy is on the school website for you to look at.

All staff in school apply our behaviour policy consistently and fairly.  This involves a positive and proactive approach to ensure every child is enabled to achieve well in a safe and happy environment.

Where there is a lack of respect or concern for others’ feelings e.g. name calling or aggressive behaviour, it will be dealt with immediately through discussion, and if necessary, by applying appropriate sanctions.

If we have any problems with behaviour we will want to talk and work together with you to resolve any difficulties that are impacting your child’s behaviour.   We highly value your input and want to work with you to achieve the nest outcomes for your child.

We have a highly skilled pastoral team at St. James, and together we can find ways to ensure positive outcomes for all our children.

Parents will be expected to contribute towards repair or replacement of any school property that is deliberately damaged.

We expect all parents and carers to be considerate in regard to the feelings of other children and families within the school and either face to face or on social media, treat each other with consideration as a good model to our children who are learning how to live in harmony with each other within our learning community and wider society.  Children bring their life experiences with them into school and they are important and character forming.
