Care & Conduct

Pastoral Care and Discipline

Our school is a caring community in which behaviour is based on mutual respect and consideration for others. There is a collective responsibility within the school towards all children. Each child is treated with respect, fairness and firmness in a caring environment throughout the school. The values, standards and attitudes of the school are made clear to the children, by example and discussion.

Our school ‘Code of Conduct’

  • All members of the school community are asked to respect each other
  • All children are expected to respect their teachers, other adults and fellow pupils
  • All children are expected to respect their own and other people's property and to take care of books and equipment
  • Children are asked to be well-behaved, well-mannered and attentive
  • Children should walk (not run) when moving around school
  • If a child has a grievance against another child, it must be reported to a member of staff who will deal with the matter
  • Physical violence is not acceptable - neither is retaliation.  Repeats of serious incidents will lead to exclusion
  • Foul, abusive or racist language must not be used.
  • Children are expected to be punctual
  • Children must not bring sharp or dangerous instruments to school, or any item that might cause a problem
  • Children should wear the correct school uniform.  jewellery or trainers should not be worn.  Hairstyles and hair attire should be simple and not include hair gel.  Longer hair should be tied back for practical and safety reasons.

This code of conduct has been formulated with the safety and well-being of the children in mind, and to enable the school to function efficiently as a place of learning.

Wickford Schools Sports Events - Code of Conduct

Everyone who attends sporting events (players and spectators) has a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour at all  times.

All our schools believe that sport should be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment.  Remember children's sport is a time for them to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills.  Winning isn't eveything.

We expect every parent/carer/spectator to play their part in promoting positive sport by observing this Code of Conduct at all times.

Everyone must:

  • Remember that children play for FUN.
  • Applaud effort and good performance as well as success.
  • Always respect the officials' decisions.
  • Remain outside playing area and away from the event officials (referees, umpires, judges).
  • Let the teachers do their job and not confuse the children by telling them what to do.
  • Encourage their own child (and all the players) to play fairly by the rules and respect the opposition and event officials (referees, umpires, judges).
  • Avoid criticising anyone - mistakes are part of learning.  The children and officials will make mistakes.  It is never acceptable to criticise them at any time.  This is particularly important when the secondary school students are officiating, as they are the sports leaders of the future and need as much encouragement as the children do.
  • Avoid using offensive, insulting, or abusive language or behaviour and discourage others if they are behaving in this way.

If this Code of Conduct is not followed, any/all of the following actions may be taken :

You could be:

  • Issued with a verbal warning.
  • Obliged to leave the sports venue if told to by a school member of staff.
  • Requested by the school Headteacher not to attend future sports events.

                                          This Code of Conduct is agreed by the Wickford schools 

Equality Act

As part of the currentEquality Act, GrangePrimary School's objective is to continue to promote and enhance Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural development through the teaching of English and Literacy, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.

Child Protection

As a caring organisation with direct responsibility for children, our first concern must be your child's welfare in all its aspects. Therefore, there may be occasions when we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you, particularly in relation to Child Protection/Abuse concerns.  Should this be necessary, we want to reassure you that any concerns we have about your child will then be discussed with you after we have talked with the other agency.  The procedures we have to follow (it is a statutory duty) have been laid down by the Essex Area Child Protection Committee.  If you would like to know more about this procedure, please speak to the Head Teacher. The school's Child Protection policy is available for inspection.

Documentation

All documents, including Inspection Reports and policies and the approved procedure for the consideration of complaints are available through the school office, for consultation by parents.  Please refer to our Freedom of Information Policy.

Insurance

The Essex Education Authority is insured in respect of its legal liability to pupils, but for a claim to succeed, the Authority has to be found to have been negligent and/or in breach of some statutory duty.  It is necessary, therefore, for parents to decide whether or not they should make their own arrangements for personal accident insurance for their children.
