1. Mission Statement
The ethos of our school is to promote good behaviour via a calm well structured
environment that consists of a safe learning atmosphere in which every person is valued.
We aim to promote a positive attitude in our pupils, creating an environment in which good behaviour is expected, within a climate of trust. We see this as a three-way partnership with pupils, parents and staff all taking responsibility for their actions.
Thames View Junior School is a school with a strong moral ethos. School rules are for the safety and comfort of all members of the school community as well as a way of establishing social learning. Any form of bullying, discriminatory behaviour or fighting will not be tolerated.
At Thames View Junior School we have adopted the behaviour programme
‘Stay on Green’. Our “Stay on Green” behaviour system provides expectations which focus on positive action (be respectful) rather than what children should not do, it highlights both good and bad behaviour with appropriate actions in order to promote well rounded students. The expectations are agreed actions so that there is consistency and fairness in all areas of school life. However, as an inclusive school, we recognise that all children are individuals with specific needs. Therefore, within this consistent approach is an element of flexibility to address the needs of specific children. Behaviours must be put in context and require all staff to use their professional judgement.
At Thames View Junior School we have Golden Rules. To ‘stay on green’, we will…
