Behaviour at Airy Hill Primary School
At Airy Hill, we have three simple school rules that are the same for all children including nursery.
The three school rules are:
We tackle low-level disruption by giving small reasonable consequences for small failures to follow reasonable instructions.
If pupils don’t follow our reasonable and clearly explained instructions, we have some steps:
- Recorded warning
- 5 minutes away from group
- Rest of session away from group
- 15 minute withdrawal to another class
- Withdrawal for remainder of morning or afternoon/ parents called /SLT informed
For more serious issues such as: a violent act or swearing, a pupil will miss some or all of their playtime depending on the severity of the act.
Pupils are offered 'Learning Points' for showing excellent behaviour for learning. At the end of the school day, a learning point is picked out of the bowl and the pupil who has earned that point will win a prize.
We love our weekly celebration assembly to which parents and carers of winning pupils are invited. There is a ‘Airy Award’ badge for each class, which progresses from Bronze to Gold and a special Headteacher's Award. To be considered for these awards, pupils must have 100% attendance for the week, and must live the Airy Hill Characteristics.
We have a strict zero-tolerance approach to bullying. We work proactively with children through half termly anti-bullying assemblies and with support from our trained up team of ‘Anti-bullying ambassadors’.
Any serious incidents are always recorded with statements taken from all children involved. Whenever possible we resolve these incidents within school and then inform parents so that they can be followed up at home. Occasionally we have to ask parents to come into school for a meeting to discuss next steps to support children’s future behaviour.
