Governors’ Behaviour Statement

 

At St.George’s, our mission is to create a culture that brings faith and learning together. As a Christian School, we value each pupil as an individual, and we work together to ensure that each child reaches his or her full potential, reflecting the principles of the Christian faith as exemplified by St.George: – Respect, Honesty, Courage, Kindness, Forgiveness and Hope.

Together we create a safe and caring school community in which every voice is valued and everyone empowered to be the best that he or she can be.

This statement has been drawn up in accordance with the Education and Inspection Act 2006 and the Department for Education (DfE) Guidance for Governors on Behaviour and Discipline in Schools, September 2015. The purpose of the statement is to provide guidance to the Headteacher in drafting the school’s Behaviour Policy so that it reflects the values of the school and the shared aspirations of governors, parents/carers of pupils, staff and pupils at the school. It also highlights appropriate legislation and guidance which need to be reflected in the policy.

The Headteacher must ensure that the Behaviour Policy is made available to staff, parents/carers and pupils and is posted on the school website. The Policy and Statement of Principles will be reviewed annually.
