Our children are at the heart of everything we do through Christian values and relationships. Living and learning together we celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of everyone in our family. We nurture a sense of self-belief, mutual respect and belonging through Social Emotional Learning and academic excellence. We are dedicated to building the foundations for happy and successful life-long learning.
At St Thomas, we all follow the 5 school rules which are at the heart of everything we aim to achieve.
Purpose of the Positive Behaviour Policy:
Provide simple, practical procedures for staff and children that:
• Encourage children to recognise that they can and should make 'good' choices
• Recognise individual behavioural norms and respond appropriately
• Promote self-esteem and self-discipline
• Teach appropriate behaviour through positive intervention
The positive behaviour policy is for all staff, pupils, parents, carers, governors, visitors, and partner agencies working within the school and provides guidelines and procedures as to how our school supports and responds to behaviour.
Our academy is committed to the emotional health and wellbeing of its staff, pupils, and parents/carers. We wish to work towards this in all aspects of school life and to provide an ethos, environment and curriculum that supports the social, emotional, and mental health of the whole community.
St. Thomas Church of England Academy is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of the learning culture and productive learning.
Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same.
At St Thomas, we believe that our Christian distinctiveness supports our children to make positive behaviour choices underpinned by their moral compass and our shared values.
