School Rules & Expectations

School Rules

We have only a few school rules which are to safeguard the children’s safety and welfare. The ‘Golden Rules’ have been devised by School Council, which has representatives from each class.

The Golden Rules are:-

  • be kind
  • be safe
  • be fair

The following is a list of guidelines and expectations for staff to help develop consistency and continuity of approach.

  • Children should not be on the premises before 8.40am unless they have been asked by a member of staff to arrive earlier, or they are attending breakfast club.
  • Jewellery should not be worn or brought to school. The wearing of earrings is discouraged, as they can be quite dangerous. If earrings must be worn, they need to be studs.

  • Children should not bring into school anything of value and they should not leave money in desks, coats or bags. Children should not need to bring money to school except for tuck shop, trips or dinner money.
