For children to enjoy school and to learn to their full potential they need an environment in which they feel happy, relaxed and secure. This is best achieved where children are clear as to what is expected of them in terms of their behaviour and as a staff we are consistent in our approach.
At Woodbury School we actively promote positive behaviour and place strong emphasis on strategies which support this to ensure that good behaviour is explicitly encouraged and celebrated. Our approach centres upon our School Values - everyone is expected to treat each other with kindness and respect, be able to apologise if things go wrong and be able to forgive. As a result our school is a very a happy and harmonious place to learn where everyone feels safe.
We have a clear Behaviour Policy which we all follow and we do not tolerate bullying. Everyone in school has a responsibility to follow the Golden Rules. We have very high expectations of our pupils and any behaviour that undermines these rules is addressed promptly.
Anti-bullying is actively taught and everyone in school is expected to ensure that bullying does not take place. Below is the Anti-Bullying Leaflet which the children in School Council produced based upon the contributions of all the classes.
