Governor Behaviour Principles

Under the Education and Inspection Act 2006, school governing bodies are charged with the duty to set the framework of school policy by providing a written statement of general principles relating to behaviour and discipline, taking into account the needs of the pupils.


The following has been approved by the governors at Peartree Primary School. It applies to all adults employed by, volunteering at or providing services to Peartree Primary School.


Similarly, given the duty of care to pupils, this statement and the policies that both stem from it and are influenced by it (e.g. appropriate contact, anti-bullying and exclusions) applies to all pupils when in Peartree Primary School, when travelling to and from Peartree Primary School and when engaged in extra-curricular activities and residential trips.
