‘Preparing each child for their future in an ever-changing world’


Governors’ Written Statement of Behaviour Principles

Agreed: 12th September 2019.  Reviewed in line with the Behaviour Policy


Section 88 of the Education and Inspections Act, 2006 requires the governing body to set the framework of the school's policy by providing a written statement of general principles relating to behaviour and discipline, taking into account the needs of all pupils.

The purpose of this statement is to give guidance to the Head teacher in drawing up the behaviour policy by stating the principles which governors expect to be followed. The policy aims to underpin the governors’ duty of care to pupils and employees; promote teaching and learning and high standards of attainment and preserve the reputation of the school. The statement is available upon request from the school and can be found on the school’s web site. It is also held in the school office.

This statement and the behaviour policy will be reviewed on a yearly basis, unless changes at national or local level necessitate an exceptional review.


Hagbourne CE Primary School is a Church of England primary school. As such, the Governing Body believe that the Behaviour Policy should be underpinned by the Christian ethos of the school, outlined in “Our Vision”; and it should seek to embrace and carry forward the School’s Mission Statement.

We aim to motivate all our children with opportunities to enjoy their learning, to be challenged, to reach their full potential and to become independent, within a caring and safe environment.

We value every individual and promote and celebrate their achievements within the Christian ethos of the school.

At Hagbourne CE Primary School we have 4 Rules which underpin daily life:

  1. Be Caring
  2. Be Responsible
  3. Be Respectful
  4. Be Courageous

This should be read in conjunction with the Behaviour Policy.
