The school has a policy on behaviour management focused on RESPECT (which is available for your perusal). We want children at Brambleside to be well behaved,self-disciplined and confident. We expect parents to work with the school in partnership to support its aims. When your child starts at our school you will be asked to sign a contract, a home-school agreement. It is our aim to build upon the discipline already established at home and we enter into this contract with you as part of our belief in partnership between home and school.
We have a system of rewards and sanctions to reward good behaviour and prevent unacceptable behaviour. Staff set a good example to the children in the way we behave with them and you. Care, courtesy and consideration are the key words in our code of behaviour. Every child has a right to feel safe, the right to respect and the right to learn. All children have the responsibility to ensure that this happens. Staff use positive behaviour management strategies. They use verbal praise, sharing success, public celebration, stickers, letters home, certificates and house points at various times during the school year. Records are kept of challenging behaviour and parents are informed and involved at an early stage if we have to use sanctions.
All incidents of racial harassment or bullying are recorded and reported as per the Northamptonshire Policy. These incidents are taken very seriously and are dealt with quickly. Parents are involved in discussions about strategies and solutions. Exclusion is very rarely necessary and only occurs if the school’s programme of positive behaviour management does not succeed and the school does not have the resources to meet the child’s need. We adhere to the Northamptonshire policy on exclusion.
