The Governors of Clearwell C of E Primary have set the following principles of behaviour:

  • As a Church of England Primary school we aim to work together to inspire and empower all our children to achieve their very best, regardless of their race, gender, class or abilities.
  • We believe good behaviour is essential to the fulfilment of this aim.
  • We believe good behaviour enables effective learning, and that effective teaching and learning promote good behaviour.
    We believe in a culture of respect for each other, the school and the community.
  • We value the importance of self-esteem and self-discipline and work hard to nurture and foster it in our learners.
  • We believe it is important to involve parents, carers and children in establishing and maintaining good behaviour and for us all to provide positive role models.
  • We strongly believe in the principle of equal opportunities and value cultural diversity.   We will not tolerate bullying, violence, racism, sexism or any form of discrimination.
  • We have developed a clear system of celebrating successes and we implement sanctions consistently.
  • We have a responsibility to support those children with emotional and behavioural needs to enable them to be educated with their peers wherever possible.
  • We endorse the school’s behaviour policy and undertake to monitor its effectiveness and support staff in its implementation.
  • We will ensure that teachers can teach and children can learn in an atmosphere of respect, security and enjoyment.
