Behaviour Policy

Expectations of behaviour of children during after school clubs should be equal to during the school day. Wherever possible, coaches should find out how behaviour is dealt with in the school in which they are working and use similar methods during coaching sessions. However, if no information about behaviour is available, then please use the following policy as guidance.

 

Wherever possible attention should be given to positive behaviour. Praise and rewards should be used to identify and strengthen good behaviour. However, where inappropriate behaviour continues, the following warning system can be used

 

   
First incident Quiet chat to child(ren) involved by coach
Continued behaviour/second incident

Verbal warning – explaining why the behaviour was not acceptable  by coach .

 

Continued behaviour/third incident Time out – Child sits out of the next activity for set period of time – let HT/Active Schools Coord know.
Continued behaviour/fourth incident

Report to Active School Coordinator/ Head teacher. Letter sent home to parents.  Meeting arranged by HT with parents/guardians

Child may miss one session of the club

Continued behaviour or extreme incident

Individual banned from attending the club in the future

This decision will be taken by the HT after a further meeting with parents/guardian/coach

School Uniform

Parents are asked to co-operate with the school in encouraging the wearing of the school uniform.

Wearing school uniform contributes to a positive school ethos and helps avoid discrimination and reduces peer pressure to wear expensive designer clothing.. Pupils are expected to be of a neat and tidy appearance and parents are reminded that unsuitable footwear is a hazard on stairs and can cause an accident.  The wearing of jeans or inappropriate logos on t-shirts or sweatshirts is to be discouraged.  Football strips are not allowed.

  • Child Tax Credit, but not working tax credit, with an annual income of less than £ 15,860
  • income support
  • jobseekers allowance[income-based]

Homework can form a very useful bridge between home and school. It is important that homework given fulfils, as far as possible the expectations of parents, pupils and teachers. To that end we now have a homework policy which is issued to every family. Should you wish to read this policy, a copy may be obtained from the school. A shortened leaflet will be issued to each family at the beginning of each session.
