Article 19 - You have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, in body or mind.
The school has a Positive Behaviour Policy which
relies heavily upon the school ethos of mutual
respect between staff and pupils and the high value
placed on the development of pupil’s attitudes in
such areas as honesty, mutual respect, sensitivity
to others, self-discipline, confidence, responsibility,
independence and fairness.
This policy (for Positive Behaviour Management)
forms the basis for acceptable standards of behaviour
for children and responsibilities for staff. In Crumlin
Integrated Primary we believe that high standards of
behaviour and discipline are the pre-requisites for
high quality educational provision. Parents will be
contacted if a child’s behaviour is causing concern.
As a Rights Respecting School our pupils have a voice
in their class and school council. At the beginning
of the year the children in all classes are given
an opportunity to agree a class charter with their
teacher. The rules and guidelines for behaviour
within each charter is formulated not only around the
children’s rights according to UNESCO but also and
most importantly around the responsibilities.
Throughout the year assemblies, artwork and circle
time activities are used to reinforce these charters
and to highlight key school rules.
Parents are expected to take an active role in
supporting the positive behaviour policy by:
1. Encouraging in their children a respect for others
and for school property.
2. Sending their children to school properly equipped
for classroom work, PE etc.
3. Respecting the need for order in school and a
civilised code of conduct.
4. Discussing the right/responsibility in focus with
their child (displayed on the newssheet).
PARENTS AND STAFF working together ensures high
standards of behaviour
In Crumlin Integrated Primary School all staff,
parents and children work together to create a
happy, caring, learning environment. Bullying in
any form will not be tolerated.
The school takes a proactive approach by having in
place a programme of lessons and weekly circle
time activities throughout the year which foster
self esteem, self-respect and respect for others.
If, for whatever reason, you have concerns about
your child’s happiness, please do not hesitate to
speak to us.
