Sheringham Primary School is a community in which behaviour is based upon mutual respect and consideration for others. The values, standards and attitudes of the school community are made clear to the children by example and discussion so that there are clear expectations of behaviour.
The school has five overall school rules: -
Be polite, friendly and helpful to everyone in school
Try to settle arguments peacefully
Take care of the school environment
Respect other peoples’ belongings
Be careful and always walk inside school
Each class also has its own set of learning rules suited to the age of the children.
When children break the class or school rules then they may be given a time-out sheet to complete, upon which they will have to identify for themselves the rules that they have broken and the effect that this may have on the rest of the school community. Children who are in time out may also be asked to complete their punishment in detention, which is organised by senior teachers every lunchtime. If a child persistently displays anti-social behaviour, consultation is arranged between the teacher and parents so that an attempt can be made to correct the matter.
Issues of bullying will be dealt with by the class teacher and brought to the attention of a senior member of staff where persistent or serious.
See the Policies and Procedures page for a copy of our policy.
Rewards/ Recognition of Achievement
Well Done Marks
When a child produces a good piece of work, shows particular effort, or behaves particularly well they may earn a well-done mark.
For earning well-done marks the children will receive special achievement rewards. Each year the school council decide what the rewards will be when awarding pupils that have reached bronze, silver, gold and superstar status.

While we always attempt to address behavioural issues in alternative ways, we will exclude children for a fixed period from one to five days if the behavioural incident is serious or repetitive enough. We follow Newham guidelines on this, and parents will always be informed at the earliest opportunity. We meet and discuss the reasons for the exclusion and positive steps forward during face-to-face meeting at the beginning of the exclusion and before the child returns to school.
