Wellbeing and Behaviour

Wellbeing

In our friendly, warm community, each child is known, valued and cared for as an individual. The Kindergarten Practitioners are dedicated to meeting the needs of each and every child and it is our intention that the children in our care have a happy experience and move on to school with confidence and the necessary skills.

Behaviour Policy

The school Behaviour Policy outlines expectations of children’s behaviour and can be found on the school website. Hard copies can be obtained from the School Office. Its main aims are:

  • For every member of our school community to be happy, valued and respected, and to be treated fairly
  • To have high expectations, appropriate to their developmental years, of children’s behaviour and to ensure that all children work to the best of their ability
  • To foster self-discipline through positive encouragement and reward

The children in Kindergarten are expected to work towards the few ‘school rules’ that we have in place at St Mary’s. These are regularly reinforced in Kindergarten. They are:

  • Treat people as you want to be treated
  • Make Kindergarten a safe and happy place
  • Be polite, show respect and be helpful at all times
  • Wear the correct school uniform
  • Walk quietly and sensibly around the school

We aim to provide a caring, friendly and safe environment, ensuring the well-being of all members of the community. Children have the right to feel and be safe at school.
