Behaviour

Our school’s behaviour policy has ensured that there is a consistency of approach across the school with pupils understanding the expectations of staff and the possible rewards and sanctions. This has resulted in a whole school understanding of behaviour strategies and significant improvements to the behaviour of individual children. Pupils behaviour over time and attitudes to learning are outstanding.

 

Pupils take enormous pride in their work and the culture across the school is one of a desire to learn.

 

Children take an active role in the school through the roles of team captains, monitors, school council and ambassadors. Year 6 pupils frequently conduct tours for prospective parents and are always complimented on their enthusiasm, knowledge of the school and love of learning.

Thank you for the overwhelming response this year. As you can see from the results the overwhelming majority of parents feel very positive about the school.

As you can see, the most controversial question was on the subject of homework. From speaking to a large number of parents, some feel that the school gives too much and some parents would like more.

These are a few quotes from parents who completed the questionnaire:
 

‘My son had some issues at school but I and my son had help from his class teacher and as soon as she knew the problem, the problem was sorted out. The staff helped my son to feel safe’.

 

‘The children at Meadow are all very polite. I have noticed this in and out of school – keep up the good work – well done’.

 

My child has received lots of support from Miss Jenkins, Mr Trueman, Miss Levers and Miss Oldman and is like a new boy’.

 

‘When I come in to help with reading for year 5 – the children are polite, respectful and motivated’.

 

Small behaviour problems have been sorted by Miss Jenkins and Mr Trueman and we are happy with the behaviour in the school’.

 

‘Both our children benefit from and appreciate the high expectations – gives them boundaries and makes them feel important, valued and part of a real community. When I reminded my 5 year old not to scoot in the playground he said, ‘yes coz Mr Trueman makes the roolz! Even at his age he understands what is expected and is happy to get on board’.

 

This is a fantastic school with high standards and exceptional teaching. Thank you.’

 

‘My son recently joined Meadow Primary School and has come on so well. We are very pleased’.

 

My Small issue was dealt with very quickly by Mr Jelley. All the staff I have approached are warm and welcoming. My child has never had a serious incident in the school but I am sure that you would deal with it quickly and efficiently’.

 

‘Considering the wide variety of backgrounds of the children there is amazing unity in behaviour and positive attitudes’.

The questionnaire showed a very positive response to what we have implemented already in school and also shows that parental and pupil attitudes to our behaviour policy are good.

Since the questionnaire has been completed we have:

  • Fed the results back to all staff.
  • Ensured that adults lead children around the school at key times of the day.
  • Ensured that parents are contacted if their children receive a code 2 for more serious reasons.
  • Applied for and attained a ‘silver award’ in the anti-bullying award.
  • Implemented qualified Emotional Learning Support Assistants to work with children who are experiencing difficulties.
  • Updated the behaviour policy which ensures clear rewards and sanctions.
  • Ran anti bullying assemblies and themed weeks to ensure that the children are aware of what to do if they are being bullied.
  • Continued to reinforce our behaviour for learning ‘RECALL’ approach to lessons.
  • Continued to complete behaviour and safety walks and ask the children opinion during lunchtimes.
  • Continued with our restorative approaches for children who have difficulties with other children.
