- Teaching lessons which are interesting and engaging.
- A consistent whole school approach to behaviour management.
- Staff maintaining high expectations for behaviour for all children at all times.
- Staff modelling and encouraging polite and positive behaviour.
- Staff knowing children’s special educational needs and understanding that some children will need additional support to maintain excellent behaviour.
- Working in partnership with parents.
- An enthusiastic Family Liaison team who support Attendance and punctuality.
- A staff who are all aware of different forms of bullying, actively try to prevent it and decisively deal with it.
- Acknowledging and rewarding good behaviour with daily housepoints and golden lottery tickets
- Acknowledging and rewarding behaviour during Weekly and Termly Certificate Assembly.
- Holding special competitions and events which help to sustain excellent behaviour in school; for example: Class competitions for lining up
