Behaviour and attitudes is a key feature of school life about which there should be a clear,shared understanding between the Head Teacher, all staff, parents, governors and children.

In order to create a positive school culture, all staff must positively reinforce appropriate behaviour.

The Bushbury Lane team will follow this policy encouraging a positive approach to behaviour management, by using a system of rewards and consequences therefore achieving a balance between recognition, responsibility and trust.
