Behaviour and Discipline

At the Olive School, staff take a positive approach to discipline. We praise pupils who conform to the School Rules and encourage pupils to develop self-discipline. Parents are asked to help us enforce these rules through discussion with their children. Appropriate behaviour is reinforced in many ways; for example in the weekly Celebration Assembly when pupils achieve recognition and rewards. If pupils make the wrong behaviour choices there is a system of warnings that lead to a variety of consequences. If a pupil’s behaviour becomes a matter of concern, parents are informed and asked to come to school to discuss the matter and rectify the problem.

Staff aim to be fair, firm and consistent in their behaviour management. Any incidents will be thoroughly investigated and recorded by an appropriate member of staff. The Assistant Headteacher keeps a record of any serious incidents.
