Behaviour for learning

How does the school encourage good behaviour?

At Emsworth Primary School, our aim is that pupils should develop respect for the environment and the feelings, rights and property of others through a climate of shared responsibility. Making children aware of the choices they have and encouraging them to reflect on the outcomes of their actions fosters this. Through our assembly themes, aspects of behaviour are highlighted and children are given particular recognition where they have contributed towards making our school a happy place.

Being a Rights Respecting School underpins this whole school policy and we believe that this will promote positive behaviour and develop successful, responsible citizens for the future.

Children receive overt praise for positive behaviour in many ways, including stickers and stars, merits, certificates, special badges, verbal praise to parents, various forms of class awards and biannual Governors Awards.

The children value our weekly Celebration assemblies in which children from each year receive certificates for particular achievements they have made in class that week.  Pupils can also bring in their certificates and medals from activities or clubs outside of school, and all parents or carers are warmly invited to attend.

All children throughout the school have recently collaborated to make a new set of school rules which are proud of, and which are set out below;

  • We always try our best
  • We show respect to everyone and everything
  • We care about each other
  • We listen to others
  • We keep our hands and feet to ourselves
