Good Behaviour

At St Mary's we're proud to strive for the very best behaviour: we show this through caring for each other, being helpful, sympathising with others, holding doors for each other, solving our friendship problems quickly, being polite, not tolerating unkindness and valuing our own and others' learning.  

We regularly celebrate good behaviour in many ways: adult praise; recording it in our Class Good Behaviour Logs; winning house points; receiving stickers; visits to the Key Stage Leaders with our work or to tell them about our good behaviour; visits to Mrs Clarke for ‘head teacher stickers’ and to write in her special Celebrations Book; receiving certificates in our termly celebration assemblies; and ‘Feel Good Friday' phone calls home to parents from the teachers.

However, if poor behaviour ever interrupts our learning or play time, there is a clear series of steps to help resolve the problem:

SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

Children's Social, Moral, Social and Cultural development flows through everything we do at St Mary's. We aim to provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop:

  • their own values and beliefs, religious or otherwise, whilst showing respect for different people’s faiths, beliefs, feelings and values;

  • their own spiritual awareness, developing their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;

  • to have a positive, caring attitude towards other people and to understand how they can contribute to their school and the wider community;

  • an appreciation of their social and cultural traditions and the diversity and richness of other cultures;

  • to be responsible for their own high standard of behaviour and understanding the consequences of their behaviour and actions and the difference between right and wrong.
