We believe all good behaviour management is underpinned by:

  • Relationships positive, meaningful relationships between adults and children;
  • Positive Recognition an overwhelmingly positive approach, where adults prioritise the recognition and celebration of good behaviour and achievement;
  • Calm adults maintaining a calm and considered approach at all times, using language that models and reinforces our School Values. For example, “At Rownhams, we show ‘love’ by…”;
  • Restorative developing empathy and understanding of actions and choices through restorative practice;
  • Adaptable and Personalised remembering that ‘managing behaviour is an art and not a science’ and therefore  reflecting on our plans and adapting our approach to enable all of our children to succeed.

All behaviour is a form of communication
