Code Of Conduct
Our code of conduct is extremely important to us, and we’ve made it short and simple, and easy for young minds to get to grips with.
Everyone at Foxton Primary school knows about The Four Cs.
Caring. Courtesy. Consideration. Cooperation.
From their first day at school the children are taught the meaning of the Four Cs, and that everyone’s behaviour is expected to reflect this philosophy. We promote good behaviour by implementing this code and through positive reinforcement.
When moments of unacceptable behaviour do occur, we carefully investigate the situation, and will deliver an appropriate reprimand or use sanctions such as the withdrawal of privileges. If there is a persistent problem, then we will involve the child’s parents in discussions to plan a suitable way to proceed.
Collective worship takes place on a daily basis at Foxton Primary School. We believe that gathering all our different groups together in this way is important for our community.
On three days of the week there are whole school assemblies, whilst on the other two days Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children have a separate assembly from that of Key Stage 2.
The worship we practice is broadly Christian in character. Our gatherings are a time for children to reflect on the needs and situations of those around them and the wider community, as well as an opportunity for sharing celebrations such as birthdays and personal achievements.
Assemblies may include singing, or listening to music and readings of poetry or from books, both fact or fiction. Visitors of various faiths and denominations are invited to lead assembly from time to time.
The school is legally required to provide both collective worship and religious education, but parents may of course withdraw their children from either of these if they wish. Children who have been withdrawn will be provided with an alternative occupation under the supervision of a member of staff.
Evaluation of individual children’s progress is monitored formally discussed at the half-termly pupil progress meetings.
