We have high expectations for all our pupils and demand excellent behaviour and courtesy from every one at Lever House at all times.
All children are encouraged and expected to respect adults, their fellow pupils and property.
The school has a positive attitude to discipline so that good behaviour is always encouraged and rewarded. We follow the behaviour policy, which is available for you to read (or download from the school website).
All staff at Lever House respond to behaviour in a fair and consistent way. A summary of this is below.
We talk to parents at the earliest opportunity to discuss children’s behaviour, informally after school or at a more formal meeting depending upon circumstances and behaviour.
We have high expectations of behaviour and we are a happy well-behaved school. Children must show respect for each other and our property. In this way, we all learn together in a safe and happy environment.
Full Value Contract
Every pupil signs a Full Value Contract at the start of the year. This means that instead of having class rules which usually involve “Do NOT….” we ask the children to reflect on how they need to behaviour, individually and as a class, in order to learn to their best ability. This allows pupils to reflect on how do I learn best and howe does my behaviour impact on stopping other people and myself learn. BUT… it also allows the pupils to think about those qualities they need to show individually and as a team to get the best out of themselves. Have a look at some examples of this at http://head.leverhouse.net/2015/09/25/full-value-contracts/
