BEHAVIOUR

Evidence of Impact on Pupil Learning

Ofsted - March 2017 

Pupils are confident, articulate and increasingly able and keen to talk about their learning. They are caring and considerate towards others and they are unfailingly courteous and polite. In class, pupils work effectively in groups, listening to each other, discussing maturely and encouraging other group members. Pupils work equally effectively by themselves, concentrating well and working hard.

Pupils are fiercely proud of their school. They have enthusiastically embraced the school’s values of ‘Love, Learning and Laughter’ and these three words characterise the school throughout the day.

Pupils’ behaviour was impeccable, their enjoyment palpable and their singing joyous.

All pupils and members of staff must demonstrate our school vision, mission and values in everything that they do.

Vision: For all pupils to fulfil their God-given talents and aspire to achieve a university education.

Mission: To ensure each child receives a balanced intellectual, spiritual, social, cultural, emotional and physical education. This is in harmony with our denominational standards and ideals. With God as the source of all moral value and truth we aspire to prepare our pupils for life.

Values: Love, Learning and Laughter.

We are a caring, Christian community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all, according to the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Every member of the school community has the right to feel valued and respected. Every individual will be treated fairly and well.

Our rules

Our school rules are taken from the teachings of Christ. The wording of our rules was taken from the Bible. Each of our school rules is broken down into a series of behaviours that we expect all adults and children to demonstrate.

Our three school rules are:

  1. In everything that you do, treat others as you would have them treat you.

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

 

By following this rule, adults will:

  • Treat every pupil as if they were their own son or daughter.

By following this rule, children will:

  • Always use their manners

  • Smile at each other

  • Praise each other

  • Use kind words

  • Be gentle and caring

  • Help others to improve

 

2. Try your very best all of the time.

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (Corinthians 1: 31)

By following this rule, adults will:

  • Never give up on a child

  • Listen to children

  • Support each and every child

  • Stay calm and never lose their temper

  • Never shout at a child

By following this rule, children will:

  • Stay focused during lessons

  • Always follow instructions

  • Put their hands up to ask or answer a question

  • Try their best to finish their work

  • Stay on-task

 

3. Forgive and forget.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6 14-15)

By following this rule, adults will:

  • Treat every day as a fresh start

  • Clean all strike charts before the start of a new day

  • Not bring up the past when addressing a current issue

  • Understand that children will make mistakes

By following this rule, children will:

  • Apologise if they make a mistake

  • Be honest if they make a mistake

  • Allow others to share their side of the story

  • Shake hands

  • Move on from the past

  • Not hold a grudge and accept an apology
