Teachers and staff at Alumwell are concerned with the educational progress as well as the personal and social development of your child. Our aim is always to encourage self-discipline and prefer to be positive and reward good behaviour, rather than only condemning bad behaviour. At all times we promote a safe and secure enviornment in which your child can learn and develop.
Our school rules are simple to understand and we expect all of our pupils to keep to them:
"Everyone respects everyone and everything"
"Everyone strives for excellence and enjoyment"
In addition, there are classroom rules which each class make with their new teacher at the beginning of each school year. These rules are displayed in the classrooms.
We believe that we have a fair system – the pupils know the rules and what to expect if they break them.
As our children’s behaviour reflects on both the home and school, we believe that the best way to improve this behaviour is by working together. Parents can access a copy of our school’s ‘Behaviour Policy’ on our website or can request a paper copy from the school office. We welcome any comments from our parents. It clearly shows the consequences for our pupils if they behave in an unacceptable way.
Parents with children joining our school for the first time will receive a copy of our Behaviour Policy with their prospectus. Consequently, behaviour is part of our home-school agreement which is completed each September.
