School Policies

Behaviour Management Policy

Full Policy (including Exclusion Policy)

We aim to create a caring and calm environment and to promote the values of honesty, fairness and respect for others.

We aim to help children develop:

  • self discipline and self control
  • a sense of self esteem
  • a moral code
  • the ability to recognise and respect the rights of others
  • accountability for their own behaviour
  • the skills that enable rational conflict resolution.

 

We aim, within the classroom situation to:

 

  • enable children to be “on task” with their learning
  • affirm cooperation as well as responsible independence in learning

 

How we follow through misbehaviour issues can be seen in our Incidents Flowchart.

Child Protection and Safeguarding

Full Policy

Wantage CE Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and safeguarding. We aim to make children happy and secure in their environment so that they may grow socially, emotionally, intellectually and morally. The health, safety and well-being of all our children are of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our school. Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.

The atmosphere within our school is one that encourages all children to do their best. We provide opportunities that enable our children to take and make decisions for themselves. Our teaching of personal, social and health education and citizenship (PSHCE), as part of the National Curriculum, helps to develop appropriate attitudes in our children and makes them aware of the impact of their decisions on others. We also teach them how to recognise different risks in different situations, and how to behave in response to them. The PSHCE teaching includes units on themes and topics such as Health and well-being, Sex and Relationship Education, Stranger Danger and E-safety issues. Children are encouraged to explore and discuss issues in a safe-environment. Parents of older children, who undertake specific units of work on sex education, will be informed before the teaching takes place and have the opportunity to view teaching materials.

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy applies to all adults, including volunteers, working on behalf of the school. It expects that everyone working in or for our School shares our commitment and the responsibility to keep children safe from harm and abuse. Any concerns will be reported to the Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher or School Office Manager, as senior designated persons for child protection.

Special Educational Needs Policy

Full Policy 2017-18

 

We aim to:

  • adopt a policy of early identification and intervention wherever possible
  • ensure that all SEN pupils receive a broad, balanced, differentiated and relevant curriculum

  • use Assessment For Learning to allow the child to plan and evaluate their success
  • remove barriers to achievement
  • provide an appropriate and inclusive educational experience.
