The Rule of Law
The importance of laws is consistently reinforced throughout the school day. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. The school behavioural policy is clearly displayed in every classroom and sets out expected behaviour and associated rights across the school. Each class also decide upon their own behaviour charter which is displayed within each classroom.
Circle time is used as an opportunity to discuss difficult situations that benefit from whole class discussion. Keeping safe when using the internet is regularly discussed with children in computing lessons and in assemblies. All members of the school community sign our Acceptable Use Policy and pledge to use the internet safely.
The school has very good links with authorities such as the Police and Fire Service, who regularly visit and help to reinforce the Rule of Law and how to keep safe.
