EXPECTATIONS OF BEHAVIOUR
Templeton School has a very positive behaviour culture. We are very proud of the excellent behaviour of our children who are frequently praised by visitors and when visiting other places for their beautiful manners and general behaviour. Good behaviour is a necessary condition for effective teaching and learning to take place and we work very hard to ensure that standards of behaviour are very high.
‘Pupil’s behave well as they move around the building and have a very caring attitude towards others that contributes positively to their wellbeing. The way pupils support each other is a strength within the school. Pupils sustain concentration for significant periods and complete a substantial amount of interesting work. This is a particular strength of the school’
In Jan 2016, a parent survey highlighted that 100% of our parents agreed that ‘Pupils behave well in school’
We expect children at Templeton School to be courteous and polite, give their maximum effort at all times and to develop a sense of pride and caring attitude towards their environment and towards each other. The expectations of the Head Teacher and his staff of high standards of behaviour, and the examples the children are set by adults in the school and at home will help them to develop courtesy, good manners and respect for others.
The most meaningful and positive form of discipline is self-discipline. We work hard at Templeton School to instil a strong sense of self discipline in our children.
Children of all ages are encouraged to behave sensibly and older children are encouraged to adopt a caring attitude towards younger ones. Particular emphasis is placed on good manners, orderly movement about the school, taking care of our school environment and caring for others. The school seeks to promote self-discipline and proper regard for authority and respect for others.
We believe that in an environment where staff are friendly and fair, yet firm, where there is positive encouragement for the learner, where achievement is recognized, where self-dignity, self-esteem and a good self-image is nurtured and fostered then children will always grow in confidence and esteem and be all they can be.
This is the cornerstone of our ethos at Templeton School!
