The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Behaviour

Ofsted has rated the behaviour of our children within the school as GOOD. During their time in school they observed behaviour for learning in lessons, assemblies, play and lunchtimes and after school clubs.

'The behaviour of pupils is good. They are polite and respectful towards their classmates, adults and visitors to the school. '

'Behaviour around the school and during playtime is good. Pupils enjoy playing with the equipment at lunchtime but say that they would also like access to equipment during morning playtime. Pupils play nicely together. Play leaders responsibly take the lead in activities and teach their classmates the rules of new games.'

Children come to school to learn and develop as individuals; any behaviour by another that stops this happening is unacceptable.

Good behaviour is expected from all the children in our school. Care, consideration, politeness, co-operation, tolerance and mutual respect are the qualities that we seek to encourage and develop. Our school rules are simple and clear and all children are expected to comply with them.

Behaviour Policy & Principles for Pupils

Home School Agreement

School Rules

1. We respect other people and their belongings.
2. We always do our best and let others do their best.
3. We follow instructions the first time.
4. We keep our hands and our feet to ourselves.
5. We help take care of our school so that everyone can enjoy being here.

We believe that children need to take responsibility for their actions. Our behaviour policy reflects this, placing a large emphasis on rewarding appropriate work and behaviour. Wherever possible we will involve parents in the reward process by sending home certificates and celebrating successes in our weekly newsletters. 

Those children who choose to misbehave, by breaking the rules or stopping others from learning will face a series of clearly explained and escalating sanctions.

Bullying

We consider bullying to be repeated behaviour that makes others feel uncomfortable, threatened or distressed. This can be physical, verbal or emotional. Whilst occurrences in our school are extremely rare they are dealt with firmly, quickly and sensitively. The exact response would, of course, depend on the nature of the bullying however in all circumstance parents of the children concerned would be notified. We will take action to resolve any problem.
