Behaviour & Anti-Bullying
Carlton Primary School has a fantastic record when it comes to promoting positive relationships and behaviour. The politeness and attitudes of our children are viewed as a school strength and visitors often comment on how confident and well-mannered our children are. Our behaviour is centered around three basic rights; the right to learn, the right to be safe and the right to be respected. Excellent behaviour inside the classroom is the key to successful learning and progress.
Outside of the classroom, positive behaviour keeps our children safe at playtimes and lunchtimes and, above all, fosters a high level of respect for peers and adults alike. Children are learning about their world and, understandably, do make mistakes from time-to-time and the behaviour policy in the Policy section details our supportive approach. Parents should be familiar with this document as good behaviour requires a team effort! Swearing, bullying, racism, homophobic comments or prejudice of any kind are not accepted within our school.
At Carlton Primary School we know that bullying can be a complex and distressing issue so we plan ongoing learning opportunities to promote understanding and to resolve any genuine incidents of bullying. We plan in half-termly schemes designed to prevent bullying and to provide firm and clear systems for dealing with bullying should it happen. Throughout this work, we always respond directly to the views and needs of our children. Our School Council and our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors place children at the centre of this discussion and ensure that, as a school community, we take ownership of the challenges. Please don’t hesitate to speak with class teachers directly for further information.
Some examples of the work we have undertaken with children:
- S.T.O.P. (Several Times On Purpose) – a visual reminder of what bullying is.
- Creating a positive classroom.
- Helping the targets of bullying.
- Helping children to recognise their bullying behaviour.
- Providing restorative interventions to make clear the harm caused, reparation, and future expectations.
