School Rules and Regulations

The purpose of these Rules & regulations is:
  • to help foster good discipline in each and every student completing schooling,
  • to facilitate the inculcation of good citizenship values, along with religious and cultural values,
  • to aid the schools in fostering respectability, productivity, knowledge, skills, and instill good health in students

While children are in school the teacher is ‘in loco parentis’. Our discipline policy rests on the encouragement of respect and consideration for the feelings of others. School rules are carefully explained to the children so that they fully understand why they are necessary.

We aim to develop self-discipline within our pupils. Punishment (when necessary and/or appropriate) usually takes the form of withdrawal of privileges or free time. Good behavior is rewarded with a smile, words of praise, stickers, and certificates.

Parental Partnership

We want to work in partnership with all our parents believing that it is important that parents and staff work together to promote good behavior throughout the school and implement the Behaviour Policy consistently.

We want our school to be a place where people treat each other with kindness and respect and where children especially feel safe and secure. We would ask therefore that no adults or parents behave in a threatening or verbally abusive manner to anyone within the school premises.

Parents Concerns

We hope that your child will be happy and successful in school. Should you have any concerns about your child’s education or welfare please discuss these with your child’s class teacher. In summary, it is split into four stages:

Stage 1 Discuss your concern with your child’s class teacher
Stage 2 Should the problem not be resolved, talk to the Headteacher.
Stage 3 If there is still no resolution of the concern; write to the Chair of Governors.
Stage 4 Make a formal complaint to the Chair of Governors. A panel of Governors will hear the complaint and make a decision.

School Council

The school encourages responsibility in its pupils and we have a School Council that promotes decision making and involvement in school life.
