Behaviour and discipline policy.

This policy was drawn up in the summer Term of 1998 following consultation with the teaching staff, kitchen staff, mid-day supervisors, parents and Governors. The policy encompasses all areas of the school, a comprehensive list of Rule Making Areas can be obtained from the school. The Governors adopted the document in November 1998 and it was reviewed in 2004.

All members of the school staff will contribute to ensuring good behaviour during teaching, play and during mid-day dining periods. Recording of unacceptable behaviour will be continuous and in all areas of the school. A Good Book and Red Index Transgression Box will be provided for this purpose. Parents will be informed should their children transgress and break school rules (having been warned on prior occasions) i.e. a 'white card'.  If the school considers further support is required to improve behaviour, a 'yellow  card'  will be issued and parents will be consulted on the next step. The County's Behaviour Support Team will be contacted and following parental consultation a plan of action will be implemented. Should it be necessary to issue a 'red card', pupils will be excluded following agreed procedures and consultation with parents, the LEA and Governors. There was one pupil exclusion for one day during the past twelve months

Positive - good behaviour will be emphasised wherever appropriate. Golden Time rewards pupils' good behaviour. Pupil monitors from all classes have opportunities to dispense and care for sports equipment loaned to pupils during play periods. Wet play games plus a games trolley for play periods are running successfully. Litter monitors tidy the school grounds and door monitors look after school entrances. 70% of junior pupils assist the school as pupil monitors and receive a variety of rewards including a 'Privilege Card'.

In order to encourage and reward good behaviour a House Points System will apply and pupils will be awarded house points as rewards. The Good Book is linked to the House Point system. In the Friday whole school assembly, the successful totals will be announced and the pupils of the successful house praised (Marian, Glyndwr and Llys). In July, the members of the winning house will be awarded a certificate and the captains presented with a shield, the 'Councillor Trevor Jones Memorial Shield'

Eco Schools Initiative

Pupils and staff are involved in a number of initiatives including recycling paper, ink cartridges, plastic and mobile telephones as well as reducing costs within the school, of water, electricity and heating. A paper bank is located in the school car park.

We were awarded the Blue Flag in September 2006 in recognition of our achievement in working towards a sustainable lifestyle.
