At Barnes, we believe that teaching children positive behaviours, as individuals and also as part of a group or wider community, is a fundamental part of our curriculum and responsibility as a school. Our Behaviour Policy is simple yet essential for children's development as citizens of our school and the wider world:
It is so much easier to remember 4 very simple, positive rules than 10-15 complicated negative rules, and most school rules will fit under one of those categories.
We have high expectations of the behaviour of our children, and this is regularly commented on by visitors, and when the children are on school trips. The ways in which our children demonstrate to use that they ready to learn, respectful, safe and kind to each other are summarised below through our four values and through the 'Magic Habits' that we promote in our daily routines.
