At Bishops Cannings we expect and achieve high standards of behaviour. We do this by:
- Following our Christian values;
- Celebrating and valuing children's achievements in sharing assemblies with parents;
- Planning high-quality learning opportunities that keep our children engaged;
- Following our golden rule of 'treating people the way you would like to be treated'; and
- By using the language of choice - we all understand that we choose our actions and are responsible for them.
Where children need help to understand the implications of poor choices we operate a traffic light system. In practice this means that when a child makes a poor choice they will be asked to think about what they are doing. If the poor choice continues the child will receive a green warning. This is an opportunity to moderate their choices. If choices remain poor the next stage is an amber warning and then finally a red warning. When a child receives a red warning, a letter will be sent home explaining the choices that the child has made and any further sanctions, if any, that will be applied. If a letter needs to be sent home we ask that parents and carers speak to their child to discuss their choices and how to avoid making poor choices in the future.
In certain circumstances a red warning may be issued immediately, for example when if there is violent or abusive behaviour. In extreme circumstances, a child may be subject to a fixed or permanent exclusion.
