1.0 Mission Statement
The ethos of our school is to promote good behaviour via a calm and well structured environment that consists of a safe learning atmosphere in which every person is valued.
1.1: We aim to promote a positive attitude in our pupils, creating an environment in which good behaviour is expected within a climate of trust. We see things as a three-way partnership with pupils, parents and staff all taking responsibility for their actions.
1.2: Sydney Russell is a school with a string moral ethos. School rules are for the safety and comfort of all members of the school community as well as a way of establishing social learning. Any form of bullying, discriminatory behaviour will not be tolerated.
1.3: At Sydney Russell Primary Phase we have adopted the Stay on Green behaviour programme which provides expectations which focus on positive action rather than what children should not do. It highlights both good and poor behaviour with appropriate action to promote well rounded pupils. As an inclusive school we recognise that all children are individuals. Therefore, within our consistent approach there is an element of flexibility to take into account the needs of all our pupils. Behaviours must be in context and require all staff to use their professional judgement.
