Positive Behaviour and Attitudes To Learning
An environment where children are happy and relaxed in their work is particularly conducive to effective learning and will help all children to achieve their maximum potential. This is best achieved where children are clear as to what is expected of them in terms of their behaviour and staff are relentlessly consistent in their approach.
At Orgill Primary 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 to promoting positive behaviour centres upon 3 key rights that every member of our school community has. These rights are:
- the right to feel and be safe
- the right to be treated with respect
- the right to learn
Everyone in school has a responsibility to protect these rights through their own behaviour and actions. We have very high expectations of our pupils and any behaviour that undermines these rights will be addressed promptly.
Ambassadors for Orgill Primary School
Each week staff will choose a pupil that they work with to be awarded 'Over and Above Ambassador'. This award goes to pupils who have demonstrated particularly positive attitudes to learning during the week and have done something that has impressed their teacher. This is an award for hard work and resilience. Pupils will be presented with an 'Over and Above' lanyard that they will wear for one week.
