There are a minimum of school rules - made for the general well-being, safety and happiness of all children within the school. Classroom rules are agreed each year for each class through discussion with the children, worded appropriately for their age and stage of development, and are based upon ‘Our Recipe for a Happy School’, and these basic principles to which all staff and children are expected to subscribe: teachers must be able to teach and children be able to learn, everyone has a right to be happy and safe.
Our Recipe for a Happy School
In additional to our recipe for a happy school, please bear in the mind the following:
Valuables, (money, watches, rings and jewellery), should not be brought to school as no responsibility can be accepted for their safe keeping.
We discourage the wearing of any jewellery for school. For safety reasons jewellery must be removed, by the child him/herself, before any physical education lesson as it could easily lead to a severe injury either for the child or for a partner. If there is a reason why a child cannot remove earrings then parents are expected to provide surgical tape to cover their child’s earrings during P.E. lessons, and to teach their child how to do this independently.
Children must not leave the playground without their parent/responsible adult known to them, at the end of the school day. If, when they are dismissed, the member of staff dismissing cannot see the person they are expecting to collect them, the child must come back into school and wait to be collected from the school library area. It is important to let the school know beforehand if anyone other than their usual adult is picking up a child.
