To be the best we can be
All our children, staff and parents will share the same core principles of:
Motivation and hard work.
Politeness and good manners.
It is a primary aim of Black Horse Hill Junior School that every member of the school community feels valued and respected and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school’s behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment in which everyone feels happy, safe and secure.
The school has a number of rules, but our behaviour policy is not primarily concerned with rule enforcement. It is a means of promoting good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the school community in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and considerate way.
The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a considerate and respectful way towards others. We treat all children and staff fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way.
This policy aims to help children grow in a safe and secure environment, encouraging them to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.
The school recognises and promotes good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and cooperation. This policy is designed to encourage good behaviour, rather than merely deter anti-social behaviour.
Behaviour Management is the responsibility of all staff at Black Horse Hill Junior School
Pupil of the week
This weekly award, given out in Friday morning assemblies is for a piece of work or behaviour that has stood out for the pupil concerned for that week. They can be nominated by any member of staff, in discussion with the class teacher.
No pupil who has been on the Red Level of behaviour in the week can win the pupil of the week.
A pupil who has been on the Amber level once for that week can win the pupil of the week, only at the discretion of the class teacher.
Teachers should endeavor to award the pupil of the week award to every member of their class, at least once throughout the school year. All teachers should keep a record of who has won the award throughout the year.
Maths Magicians / Reading Champions / Wonderful Writers
For pupils who demonstrate excellence and enthusiasm in the core subjects of reading, writing and mathematics there will be an award every term for excellent writers, readers and mathematicians. There will be one award of each category in each year group. These will be recommended by teachers in that year group. Winners will have their work and photo displayed on boards in the school hall.
Children can wear a special T-shirt in school, instead of school jumper for the duration of their award. A letter home to the parents will accompany the award.
The Governing Body reviews this policy every two years. The Governors may however, review the policy earlier than this if the Government introduces new regulations, or if the Governing Body receives recommendations on how the policy might be improved.
