Our School Rules
Our school rules were written by staff and children and are instrumental in making our school a happier and safer place to learn and play.
We use our school rules to talk to children about their behaviour. Children are praised for keeping our school rules and role models are recognised and rewarded. Children who break a school rule are encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions and consider the impact of their actions on others.
At St Paul's, we use positive interaction and restorative language and approaches to develop children's sense of right and wrong and encourage reflection, responsibility and reparation. Restorative questioning is used to facilitate positive interactions between individuals and groups in both informal and formal conferencing situations.
Staff use the following language and 'script' to ensure positive, consistent and fairness interaction between the children when helping them work through issues between children. This approach provides the opportunity for children to 'be heard'.
