Values and ethos
Stanley Grove Primary Academy is an inclusive school where all pupils are encourage to do their best and to prepare themselves for successful lives. All the opportunities provided to children at Stanley Grove are designed to help them grow into confident and happy life-long learners.
Our pupils follow the Stanley Code. We expect everyone in our school community to know, remember and understand the school code. It is expected that they will be regularly referred to in an age appropriate way.
Be Safe- We come to school to be safe and to learn
Be Respectful- We respect ourselves and others
Be Responsible- We are responsible for our actions.
As a Rights Respecting School, we use the articles to link our positive messages regarding the behaviour we would like to see the children display
At the beginning of each academic year, as part of the SEAL ‘New Beginnings’ unit, the class teacher will consult with their class to revisit the school code. The code will be displayed in the classroom in a form that is accessible to the children.
Class teachers use the PBIS (Positive behaviour intervention and support) strategies to promote good behaviour in class. These focus around the use of affirmative language and the use of praise. Stanley Grove Primary Academy is passionate about changing behaviour and not simply controlling it using punitive measures.
