Behaviour

At Templemoor Infant and Nursery School we aim to create a welcoming, caring environment where relationships are based on respect and to develop a positive self-esteem in each child. The staff at Templemoor are committed to maintaining high expectations of good behaviour as an essential contribution to the educational experience of the children and to their happiness and well being while in school. We expect that you will support our approach to behaviour which, we feel, will be of benefit to all.
 
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is the cornerstone of our whole school policy for promoting positive behaviour.

In consultation with the children, staff, parents and governors at the school we have developed a policy which aims to encourage children to work and play together to uphold our ethos.

Our positive behaviour system encourages children to manage their own behaviour. The UNCRC is a real and meaningful guide to action on a day-to-day basis and as a result there is no need for school rules. The children in each class develop their own Class Charters which become a point of reference for the class and once signed by the teacher, assistants and pupils it signifies a joint undertaking which binds everyone together.

School Charter and Outdoor Charter
 
Our Whole School Charter and Outdoor Charter promotes a rights respecting ethos across the school and has been agreed by the whole school community including pupils, staff, parents and governors. These are:
 
  • Article 12 I have the right to say what I think and to be listened to.
  • Article 19 I have the right to be protected from harm.
  • Article 24 I have the right to a clean and safe environment.
  • Article 24 I have the right to clean water and nutritious food.
  • Article 28 I have the right to learn.
  • Article 29 I have the right to be respected.
  • Article 31 I have the right to play and rest.
The School Charter is displayed in all classrooms, the corridors and school hall and the Outdoor Charter is displayed outside. Both Charters act as a visual reminder for everyone working in the school environment both inside and outside.
