At Littlegreen School we believe that all pupils should be supported to achieve their academic potential and lead independent and fulfilling adult lives. We enable this by building mutually respectful relationships with them and showing them how to have respectful relationships with each other and with other people. The school aims to provide a safe, secure, supportive environment where pupils can learn and teachers can teach. There is a direct link between the way young people learn and their behaviour. It is the job of staff at all levels to help and encourage pupils’ understanding of socially acceptable and appropriate behaviour.
Our approach to behaviour management is based on the knowledge and understanding that all behaviour is a communication. We deal with inappropriate behaviour through the school policy whilst always seeking to understand and address the cause of the behaviour. We understand that pupils’ special needs often present as inappropriate behaviour choices and we will always support pupils to develop strategies that will help them to communicate feelings of anger, confusion, stress and anxiety to adults and other children in an appropriate manner.
Anti Bullying Ambassadors
Three of our pupils have recently attended Anti Bullying training run by the Diana Award. Miss Cripps and Miss Davis are working with the pupils to help them to support their peers and to make sure that Littlegreen is a bully free zone.
