How do we support behaviour for learning at Fox Primary School? 

Welcome to Fox Primary School. We are proud of our school and our children, and we hope you enjoy your time with us. Here follows a brief explainer of our approach to behaviour management.

We have high expectations of everyone in our school, staff and children. Everyone is expected to adhere to and demonstrate our Fox Rules, which are:

1.       We try our best

2.       We listen to each other

3.       We are kind and respectful

4.       We respect and celebrate our differences

5.       We look after our school environment

6.       We keep others and ourselves safe

Our school rules are closely linked to our Federation Values of Curiosity, Collaboration, Respect, Inclusion and Resilience.

Our approach to behaviour is trauma-sensitive. This means that we seek to create a calm and safe environment. We aim to form positive, trusting relationships with children and recognise that this is the foundation of a productive and welcoming learning environment. We avoid shaming and publicly comparing children. We believe that this approach is supportive of the wellbeing and development of all children, regardless of background.

We focus upon the use of positive behaviour management techniques such as:

We are proactive in responding to unwanted behaviour and take a curiosity-based, solution-focused approach, taking into account the needs and strengths of individual children. Children are expected to make amends when they have broken a school rule, and consequences aim to be reparative and support learning to do better.

Some serious behaviours require an escalated response. This would always be decided in partnership with a member of the leadership team and shared with parents.
