At Djanogly Strelley Academy we are always striving to ensure that all the pupils feel secure and confident within the boundaries set. All those who behave in a responsible and thoughtful way will experience success and will help create a happy environment through positive relationships with both other children and adults.
All the staff at this school will contribute towards sustaining a happy environment as this will lead to positive attitudes towards learning and working effectively with others. We also expect volunteers to share the same ethos.
We operate on positive approaches and encourage the re-enforcement of acceptable behaviour.
Our systems of positive behaviour management and our school rules reflect our belief that children need praise and encouragement to succeed. We reward good behaviour and deal consistently with bad behaviour. It is important to emphasise - we make it clear that it is the inappropriate behaviour we don’t like, not the child.
