‘Excelsior’ - Ever Upwards           

Principal: Leica Carter 



In our school we strongly believe that high standards of behaviour lie at the heart of a successful school, and our children's needs are at the heart of our provision.

High expectations and standards of behaviour are essential in order for Temple Normanton to achieve its vision of being a place where children can achieve their full potential, and where partnerships between teacher and child are based upon trust, respect and an ethos of mutual care and consideration.

To achieve this vision we must work as a community and that specifically involves ensuring that partnerships with parents and carers are strong. It is our shared belief that behaviour management is everyone’s concern and responsibility.

Our aim is to ensure that strategies employed in school do not simply reward children for good behaviour and punish them for bad, but help them to learn from their mistakes and teach them how to make better choices should they find themselves in similar circumstances again.

Good, fair and consistent behaviour management strategies teach children that they are in control, and that the power to make a good or bad choice is within them and not something that they should look to someone else for. Every individual has the right to feel safe in school; this will happen when every individual takes responsibility for making the right choices.

We know that by working together we can inspire our children to become successful in all they do and to develop a life-long thirst for learning.
