We believe every child at Flanshaw School has a right to learn, teachers have a right to teach and this will only happen if there is an ethos of positive behaviour.
Our pupils should enjoy learning...
By building their confidence, feeding self-worth and lighting their ambition they will be well placed to take advantage of opportunities to become creative and effective learners, prepared for the world of work, active and enterprising citizens, secure in self-knowledge and ready for the changing world we live in demonstrating good behaviour and self-discipline.
The Governors, Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team work with all teaching and support staff, to develop and implement behaviour support strategies to promote positive behaviours throughout school providing excellent continuity of care. By involving all our staff, this ensures a consistent approach throughout, which they can take ownership of and have the confidence in our behaviour policy by being a great role model to our pupils.
We have high expectations of our children’s behaviour. We believe that every child can make the right choice about their own behaviour and learn to take responsibility for their own actions.
Our staff are trained in various positive behaviour techniques, one of which is restorative practice which helps a child to discuss their thoughts and feelings and those of others after an incident has occurred. This provides the child with new strategies to use, reflect and understand others feelings to helps them develop ways to manage their negative behaviour a little better in the future, building on their skills for life.
