The Rule of Law
The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the PCSOs and Fire Service help reinforce this message. This is backed up by a clear behaviour system, comprising of class points and warnings. We also use red slips being used as a deterrent at lunch times. Our Behaviour, Exclusions and Anti-Bullying policies state clearly states the views of RPS and the procedures.
