Behaviour for Learning

Our relationships and behaviour ethos is based on our four core rules and our four values:

At East Ward, we should always Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Safe. This ethos is based on the work of Paul Dix. We aim to set out the rules, relentless routines and visible consistencies that all
children and staff follow. Good behaviour is recognised with children being praised publicly and reminded of our expectations in private.

We are Happy, Challenged, Successful and Proud

  • We are HAPPY and we treat each other fairly and show our love through keeping each other safe, respecting each other and supporting each other in keeping our Golden rules so that East Ward is a HAPPY place to thrive and learn.
  • We are CHALLENGED in the way we work and play, when children find things difficult we think of others’ needs and ways in which we can support those who find positive behaviour difficult by: supporting one another, encouraging resilience, restoring any conflicts, ensuring understanding, resolving situations, apologising and moving on.
  • We show how PROUD we are of one another by celebrating success. We take pride in the way we freely and sensibly move around our learning environment, respecting others and property, we pride ourselves in our exemplary learning behaviour and positively praise all achievements.
  • We are SUCCESSFUL and build positive relationships with all members of our school community. We behave, and we always try our best and will support those who find positive behaviour challenging so that we can learn to the best of our ability and achieve our full potential.

We use Restorative Approaches  to develop community and to manage conflict and tensions by repairing harm and building relationships. Restorative practice is a philosophy and ought to guide the way we act in all our dealings. We aim to create a climate of a proactive approach rather than a reactive approach to managing behaviour that is built on a restorative attitude to resolving conflicts.

Children’s Mental Health Week will take place from 5-11 February 2024. The theme this year is ‘My Voice Matters’.

My Voice Matters is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health.

This year, we want to empower children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing. Our aim is for Children’s Mental Health Week, we want all children and young people to be able to say – and believe - “My Voice Matters.”

We are celebrating Children's Mental Health Week by exploring the text 'I Talk Like A River'. We are using this as a vehicle to develop our understanding of emotions and also how we empathise with others.
