Behaviour at Harleston C of E Primary Academy
The aim of Harleston C of E Primary Academy is for every member of the academy community to feel valued and respected and for all persons to be treated fairly. We are a caring community, whose values are built on Christian teaching enabling us to build a family. The academy behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which the members of the academy can live and work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure.
We are committed to:
- Understanding that children’s behaviour can change and that given the opportunity, every child can be successful
- Promoting self-esteem, self-discipline, proper regard for authority, and positive relationships based on mutual respect
- Promoting a culture of positive praise and encouragement in which all pupils can flourish and grow
- Being aware of each child’s needs and their individual circumstances to help us to act in the fairest way
- Providing a safe environment, free from disruption, violence, discrimination, bullying and any form of harassment
- Developing positive relationships with our pupils, parents and community; making everybody feel valued
- Teaching children to respect the rules and the authority of the academy and the community

Parents’ Guide to Behaviour
We believe that all pupils have the right to learn in a safe, caring environment without the fear of being bullied. At Harleston Primary Academy we endeavour to promote good citizenship and make it clear that bullying is anti-social and contrary to our ethos. It is wrong and will not be tolerated.
We feel that it is important for pupils and parents /guardians to know that any bullying complaints will be dealt with firmly, fairly and promptly.
We follow and implement the St Benets. Trust Anti Bullying policy in our school community. Furthermore, our school values are at the heart of everything we do—promoting positive behaviour.
