We have replaced a ‘Behaviour Policy’ with a ‘Relationships policy’ because we recognise it is healthier as a community to focus the time and energy we have on positive relationships as opposed to control and compliance; this then also becomes about all relationships, between adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
The school approach prioritises reflection and self-evaluation; individual autonomy and building on strengths; democratic representation and collaboration; praise that inspires growth rather than implying judgement and taking responsibility for yourself and others.
