Statement of Behaviour Principles
The governors of St Edmundsbury Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School believe that high standards of behaviour lie at the heart of a successful school and enable children to make the best possible progress in all aspects of school life.
With this in mind, the school governors have established the following statement of principles for behaviour at St Edmundsbury Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School:
This written statement and the policies that are influenced by it apply to all pupils when in school, when engaged in extra-curricular activities such as educational trips and visits (residential and non-residential) and when travelling to and from school.
The governing board also emphasises that violence or threatening behaviour will not be tolerated in any circumstances.
This is a statement of principles not practice. Practical applications of the principles are the responsibility of the Headteacher.
This statement provides guidance to the Headteacher in drawing up the school's Behaviour Policy. The policy will be developed with reference to the Department for Education's (DfE) guidance documents.
