Behaviour We expect a high standard of behaviour at all times. The school expectations, consquences and rewards will be discussed with all children at the beginning of each term. Not following the expectations affects the education of all children in the class and will be taken seriously.
We use several strategies to encourage children to manage their own behaviour and to become positive role models.
Throughout our time at Broadfield we focus on British Values and how these relate to our school values. Our school values are: Belief Respect Our Community Aspirations Diversity Friendship Inclusion Equality Learning Determination E-Safety In School, we have been talking to the children about keeping safe online. Do you know what your child is doing on the internet? Were you aware that children cannot join Facebook until they are thirteen?
