Behaviour
“Behaviour is good. Pupils say that they feel safe in school and have positive attitudes to their learning. Pupils are well mannered and friendly. They show a genuine interest in visitors and speak enthusiastically about the school and their achievements. They listen politely
and talk respectfully to adults and to each other. They ask whether they can help and consider each other’s welfare, particularly that of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. ,” Ofsted 2017.
 

Redfield Edge is proud of the good behaviour demonstrated by the children in and around our school. We work hard to ensure that children learn how to be caring, friendly and respectful towards each other.

Prevent Bullying

At Redfield Edge, we do all that we can to ensure that children are free from bullying in all its forms. Children are taught about bullying during PSHE lessons throughout the year and during our Anti-Bullying week each November.

At Redfield Edge Primary School we accept the following as a definition of bullying:

bullying is when someone (or a group of people) picks on you, hurts you, calls you names, threatens or says nasty things about you, takes your things and friends away and keeps on doing it, making you feel frightened and/or unhappy.

It can be:

Physical – hitting, kicking, spitting, tripping someone up, or stealing/damaging someone’s belongings.

Verbal – name-calling, insulting a person’s family, threats of physical violence, spreading rumours, or constantly putting a person down.

Emotional/psychological – excluding someone from a group, humiliation or creating a feeling of danger.

Racist – insulting language/gestures based on a person’s actual or perceived ethnic origin or faith, name-calling, graffiti, or racially motivated violence.

Sexual – sexually insulting language/gestures, name-calling, graffiti, and unwanted physical contact.

Homophobic/ Transphobic – insulting language/gestures based on a person’s actual or perceived sexuality, name-calling, graffiti, or homophobic/ transphobic violence.

Electronic – bullying by text message, bullying on the internet (in chat rooms, on bulletin boards and through instant messaging services), or hate websites.

Bullying is the abuse of power by one person or a group over another. All of the types of behaviour listed above are unacceptable and will not be tolerated at this school.

If you or your child are concerned, please see either the class teacher or Mrs Robinson or Mrs Griffiths as soon as possible.
