Riverside School Staff create an environment in which all individuals are valued, respected and feel safe. Positive behaviour strategies are implemented across the school to ensure teaching and learning can be given priority.
- To provide an ethos where all pupils respect each other and where there is mutual respect between staff and pupils.
- To create a climate where pupils learn, develop and mature.
- To provide rewards for good practice
- To provide a safe and caring environment where all pupils are encouraged to respect others, irrespective of race, gender, colour, creed or disability.
- For pupils to develop strategies/skills to cope with various situations which arise in and outside school.
- Ultimately for Riverside pupils to manage their behaviour through their own self-regulation rather than through constraints imposed from outside.
