The Governors of The Culm Valley Federation (Plymtree C of E Primary, Culmstock Primary and Kentisbeare C of E primary) believe that each school’s ‘Behaviour and Positive Relationships Policy’should reflect the following principles:

  1. Staff, parents and governors should work together to create a safe learning environment in which children are secure and can grow in confidence to develop their talents. We all have >high expectations of our children and expect them to work hard and behave well.
  2. Behaviour is well managed so that children are able to learn and teachers are able to teach.
  3. All pupils are supported to achieve their potential, academic and social, and are provided with support to overcome any barriers to learning they may face.
  4. Respect – for each other, staff and other adults they may come across in the course of their school life and for their environment, is at the heart of the school’s ethos. Children will be encouraged to develop respect for a range of different views of our world.
  5. Children are encouraged to develop self-discipline and to take responsibility for their actions.
  6. All members of each school community have the right to:
    • Feel safe and have a voice that will be heard
    • Learn and achieve to the best of their ability
    • Be treated with dignity and respect
    • Expect a clear Code of Conduct with accompanying rules and regulations which are well publicised, clear and consistently implemented.
  7. Each school works in partnership with parents/carers and families and with other agencies who may be involved with a pupil.
  8. The schools are fully inclusive and actively promotes equality of opportunity for all members of the school community regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
    The school will monitor the impact of all its policies and be alert to disproportionate impact on vulnerable groups.
  9. The individual school’s ‘Behaviour and Positive Relationships Policy’ should be based on the principles of positive behaviour management. Whilst sanctions may sometimes be necessary and appropriate wherever possible the school seeks to encourage the right behaviour rather than punishing the wrong.
