Intimidating behaviour definition
Children who persist in aggressive or anti-social behaviour may be excluded from play-times and further advice can be sought to help them to learn to become a more sociable person.
FIGHTING is not accepted as a way of solving problems and children are taught that “play-fighting” is not acceptable as this kind of boisterous play can easily turn nasty in a playground situation.
We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all.
Children and parents need to feel confident that something will be done about the problem.
Often it is enough to simply confront a child with what they have been doing and explain the effect it has on someone else, whilst issuing a reminder that such behaviour will not be tolerated.
No school will ever be free of children who from time to time have problems with unacceptable behaviour.
It is school policy to manage such behaviour in a positive and supportive way, involving parents and, where necessary, the educational psychologist and other support agencies.
