PSED: Managing feelings and behaviour
We aim through the EYFS for children to:
Early Learning Goal
Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others behaviour, and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations, and take changes of routine in their stride.
Our school is a happy, friendly, welcoming place. Our positive behaviour policy is very much about caring relationships and rewarding good work, manners and behaviour.
The ethos in nursery is very positive and created by caring relationships and in the way all concerned with school interact with one another.
Every interaction is based on caring professional relationships and respectful acknowledgement of the feelings of children and their families.
We hope to foster a partnership with our parents and children in order to achieve the following aims:
We aim to teach patience, generosity and respect for people and property by example.
We aim to develop a childs self-esteem by promoting opportunities for successful achievements. We reinforce good behaviour by praise.
We aim to teach children to co-operate, share and take turns.
We aim to teach children to manage conflicts appropriately, thus in an incident:-
a) we try to establish what has happened
b) we try to help the children to see the others point of view by talking in a calm manner with them
c) we try to help them understand when their behaviour is unacceptable
Rewards and Achievements
In our school Every Child Matters. Every effort is made to make the school environment as welcoming both to children and parents as is possible. All staff recognise that children need to be well-motivated in order to function at their best.
In order to promote well-motivated children staff use the following strategies:
Staff need to use their discretion according to the needs of individual cases e.g. if a child hurts someone or behaves unsociably they may be asked to play elsewhere.
In extreme cases, the Behaviour Support Service and/or Team Teach Service may become involved in supporting the school develop appropriate strategies.
There are times when we need to use behaviour management strategies such as sticker or individual smiley face books. Parents are always kept informed when such strategies are used so that they can give their support.
Role of Governing Body
The governors play a key role in influencing the ethos of the school. This influence carries with it a responsibility to support the headteacher and her staff in maintaining high standards of behaviour within the school.
The Governors will review the school behaviour policy every 2 years, or earlier if changes are required or recommended.
Role of Headteacher
Role of Teacher
We do not feel that bullying is a common problem in our school.
However, bullying may be distinguished from other unacceptable forms of aggression in that it involves dominance of one child by another, or a group of others, and usually forms a pattern of behaviour rather than an isolated incident. Bullying or other forms of harassment can make a child’s live unhappy and can hinder progress.
If staff feel action is appropriate they must
The LA behaviour management support team may become involved.
All incidents must be taken seriously and, as with bullying, it must be made clear that such practices are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
All incidents of racial harassment must be reported to the headteacher, and logged.
