How We Behave

The children at Ayresome focus upon the core values of Respect, Trust, Tolerance, Ambition, Determination and Excellence. All staff actively encourage the pupils to demonstrate kindness to others and understanding. These inclusive practices are reflected in our Rights Respecting Level 1 award achievement and in the work that the school does on behaviour management and our commitment towards the award of School of Sanctuary.

 Our praise and reward system is built upon assertive mentoring principles. Children strive to achieve their bronze, silver and gold wrist bands through our merit system and houses complete for the trophies termly!

As we continue to develop pupil leadership and core rights and responsibilities in school; the school has adopted the LORIC principles of pupil leadership; 

  • Leadership
  • Organisation
  • Resilience
  • Initiative
  • Communication

Through our achievement APP ‘Marvellous Me’, children are awarded badges and awards point to their own account which are shared and celebrated with parents and carers. Many pupil leadership opportunities are developing rapidly in school and our charter in every classroom agreed by the pupils in our care is the school’s core promise to our children that we continue to nurture and develop their wellbeing, mental health and citizenship.

An updated copy of the behavioural statement of principles 2017, is located on the Parents page ‘policies and procedures’ tile  alongside the positive behavioural policy.
