We recognise that the values we promote within our school play an important part in the spiritual, moral and social development of the children for whom we hold a responsibility.  These values include: responsibility, respect, positivity, inquisivity, collaboration and resilience.  The children also follow the Woodside's Code of Conduct. Whilst values are sometimes explicitly expressed, they are more often implicit in the ways we behave ourselves and in the ways we expect others around us to behave.  For this reason it is important to provide clear guidelines for a consistent and coherent approach to behaviour and discipline within the school.


Our behaviour strategy is aimed at improving educational outcomes for all pupils, by promoting and supporting their engagement in education.  We aim to develop a positive focus on improving children’s engagement, motivation and well being.


We believe that self-esteem affects all thinking and behaviour and impacts on learning and performance. We aim to provide positive everyday experiences so that our children are self confident and secure, with a strong sense of belonging.


Our Behaviour Policy will be reviewed yearly and we invite all our stakeholders to comment on strategies used by the school.
