“Pupils’ behaviour is of a very high standard. They have excellent manners and move around the school in a very calm and orderly manner arriving punctually for their lessons.” – OFSTED, 2013
“Two no notice visits to classrooms showed behaviour to be exemplary. The pupils showed real enthusiasm for learning across all subject areas and there were no examples of low level disruption.” – LA inspector, 2015
At Stoke Park, you will find it hard to spot a list of rules. Rules tell us what we can or can’t do but in complex places like schools, we would need many rules to cover every situation e.g. the classroom, the playground, the dining hall etc.
However, what you will hear us talking about at Stoke Park are three fundamental rights:
A right to learn
A right to feel safe
A right to be happy in school
Children are expected to behave in a manner, in all situations, that helps them to learn and keeps them safe and happy. We’ve called this self-responsible behaviour – it can be summed up as ‘doing things that are good for me’.
Children are also expected to behave in a manner, in all situations, that helps others to learn and keeps others safe and happy. We’ve called this caring behaviour – it can be summed up as ‘doing things that are good for others’.
At Stoke Park we can be really proud of our children’s behaviour; they are very self-responsible and have an excellent attitude to learning and they treat each other with care and respect. Of course children are not perfect (none of us are) and from time to time, something will go wrong but children from this school do learn from their mistakes especially when teachers and parents give them the same clear message.
At Stoke Park Primary School, we believe that children who always have a positive attitude to their learning and always behave well towards others give themselves the best chance of being successful in life.
Each week we have an ‘Outstanding behaviour’ assembly where we reward every child who has behaved outstandingly all week.
