Download | Readiness to learn overview – A4 2019
At St. Joseph & St. Bede we are committed to create a positive climate within the school based on a sense of community and shared values. Discipline is based upon good relationships and mutual respect. Good behaviour means that children are ready to learn.
We want our learners to be ready to learn, to be respectful of each other and to feel safe. Our Readiness to learn overview – A4 2019 echoes our core values with a heavy emphasis on respectful behaviour.
This supports our Mission Statement:
Our school is a Catholic Community working together for the development of our children, with the love of God as our central focus. Through this common bond, all members of our community ….work in partnership towards love, tolerance and justice.”
We have discussed with our children what these words mean, how they can use these words to help them in school and what their behaviour may look like when they are ready, respectful and safe. This is what they think:
· We are READY to learn – we arrive at school on time, we have our equipment ready and we show that we are listening
· We are RESPECTFUL – we listen when others speak and we respect the property of our friends and the school.
· We are SAFE – we move around school in a safe manner, we follow instructions to keep ourselves safe on school trips, we use equipment safely and we stay safe online.
We are holding weekly hot chocolate sessions throughout the year to celebrate outstanding behaviour. Children and staff are nominated and invited to spend some time in the staff room and enjoying a little treat as a reward.
