Pinner Park Junior School is a Rights Respecting School, and this is the key principle that
underpins the whole school policy for promoting positive behaviour. In consultation with the
children, staff, parents and governors at Pinner Park Junior School we have developed a policy
which aims to encourage children to work and play together to maintain this ethos.
- We promote an awareness of everybody's individual needs and aim for everybody to be valued in a
community. Each child is aware of their rights and responsibilities and will have helped to produce
their Class Charter.
- We expect good behaviour to be modelled by all adults in the school and we expect everyone to take
pride in their school, their class, their work, their environment and their relationships.
- We expect all staff to treat children fairly, consistently and sensitively. We ask them to listen,
to hear both sides of a story and to help children find solutions to challenges in a supportive manner.
- We celebrate and praise children's achievement and success.
- We recognise and celebrate the diversity of our children and staff — 'pride in our heritage and
confidence in our future'.
- We value parental support in working collaboratively to find solutions to behaviour management issues.
- Positive behaviour strategies and sanctions are practised in a systematic, consistent way by all
adults in the school.
- Learning behaviours are encouraged and developed across the school to promote success.
- Respect for pupil's own learning opportunities and others is expected so that everybody's right to
learn is upheld. There is a central focus on pupils taking responsibility for their own learning
— level of concentration, good listening, working cooperatively with learning partners/ groups,
self-assessing accurately, choosing a level of challenge that supports new learning and doing best work.
- Effort and determination are prized as the key to good learning and success.
- Each class agrees their own class charter, which is displayed in the classroom to act as a reminder.
- To help the children become responsible for their behaviour, there are agreed consequences that follow
when rights are disrespected.
- Children are always reminded of their rights and others' rights before the consequences are applied.
- When staff are worried about a child's behaviour they will contact the parents to try to sort out
- Through this policy, we aim to ensure that behaviour in the school is of a high standard and that
pupils have the necessary tools to manage their own behaviour as well as to respond appropriately to others.
