Behaviour Policy Review (Sep 2023)

Review & Consultation

At the end of last year and during the recent school INSET day we have been reviewing our Behaviour Policy and the actions that we take in response to the many different behaviours that we see in school. During this work, children in the School Council wanted clarity on the overall school rules as each classroom currently has a slightly different set of rules depending on the age of the children. Additionally, staff wanted something short that would be memorable for all. We are therefore looking to introduce a new Code of Conduct with the four key principles:


Be Kind. Be Safe. Be Polite. Be Responsible.


Alongside this, we have aimed to make the school processes around behaviour clearer to parents by providing flowchart of our Stepped Interventions.


We now wish to offer this out to all parents as a consultation and invite your comments and views.


As you read through the material on this page, you will find links to pages where you can provide feedback on the various areas.  The feedback links are split into two parts; Questionnaires where you will be asked specific questions and open sections where you will be able to write any comments that you may have.  


Even if you do not have any additional comments, we would be grateful if you could still complete the questionnaires as this will provide us with some idea of the number of parents that we have been able to reach in this way.


At St Luke’s Primary School, we are preparing our children for life, in school and beyond, providing them with the understanding to build, maintain and repair relationships to live “life in all its fullness.” John 10:10


We aim to create a culture that makes everyone in the school community feel valued and respected. At St Luke’s Church Primary School, we have high expectations of behaviour and personal achievement for all of our children. We establish this by providing a caring and stimulating environment where pupils are encouraged to be independent, develop self-control, show respect for others and take responsibility for their actions.


We believe that good behaviour and high levels of wellbeing promote effective learning. Staff, children and parents/carers themselves are essential in ensuring that this is understood and maintained.

Stepped Intervention



Please click on the pdf below to read this image in more detail.

Children can often make the wrong choice and need reminding about their behaviour. To contact parents about every single incident would be both unmanageable and would offer the children no opportunity to take responsibility for their actions and to show that they have learnt from the experience. However, when poor behaviour is repeated there is a need to engage with parents and work together to highlight the impact of actions on children themselves and those around them. The flow chart above, and in appendix i of the policy document, outlines the response to incidents, actions to be taken with the children and when contact is made.
