Behaviour Principles

At Allens Croft Primary School, we want to create an environment that is safe, where everyone is kind to themselves and others, and where children come into school ready to engage in their learning. Our aim is for our pupils to be ready, safe and kind.


Our three rules are ready, safe and kind. 


  • Every child has the right to learn but no child has the right to disrupt the learning of others.
  • Everyone has a right to be listened to, to be valued, to feel and be safe. Everyone must be protected from disruption or abuse.
  • We draw attention to and reward positive behaviour and mutual respect through our three rules of being ready, safe and kind. 
  • It is expected that all adults (staff and volunteers) will set excellent examples to the children all the time.
  • We will seek to give every child a sense of personal responsibility for his/her own actions.
  • Where there are significant concerns over a pupil’s behaviour, we will share the strategies we use with parents/carers- working on an active partnership to promote positive behaviour.


Statement of Behaviour Principles 

The following principles are:

  • Every pupil understands they have the right to feel safe, valued and respected, and to be able to learn free from the disruption of others
  • All pupils, staff and visitors are free from any form of discrimination
  • Staff and volunteers set an excellent example to pupils at all times
  • Rewards, sanctions and reasonable force are used consistently by staff, in line with the behaviour policy
  • The behaviour policy is understood by pupils and staff
  • The exclusions policy explains that exclusions will only be used as a last resort, and outlines the processes involved in suspensions and exclusions
  • Pupils are helped to take responsibility for their actions
  • Families are involved in the handling of behaviour incidents to foster good relationships between the school and pupils’ home life
  • The governing board also emphasises that violence or threatening behaviour will not be tolerated in any circumstances.                                                                         
  • This written statement of behaviour principles is reviewed and approved by the full governing board annually.
