Ethos and Behaviour
At Ryhill we aim to:
Develop inquiring minds, with the ability to question, think rationally and independently creating self-motivated thinkers.
Promote excellence, equality and high expectations for everyone. Standards will be high in all areas of the school's work and there will be an atmosphere of challenge and support at all levels.
Establish learning environments that will be exciting and rewarding.
Provide a curriculum that is a broad range of creative, stimulating, sporting and artistic opportunities through which the children will experience discovery and success.
Enable our children to keep safe and adopt healthy life styles in order for our children to be emotionally and physically healthy.
Establish an ethos where everyone is included, valued and respected.
Everyone will be given the opportunity to fulfill their potential and become the best that they can possibly be.
Be positive role models, we will encourage open-mindedness and respect for others.
Enable pupils to take responsibility for their own learning, to use and apply their developing skills and to work collaboratively.
Enable the pupils to set themselves high standards, to take pride in their work and strive towards their targets.
Place the school at the centre of the community by working closely with parents and local groups, and strive to make a positive contribution towards that community.
We will never be complacent and strive for continuous improvement through effective consultation and rigorous self-evaluation.
At Ryhill Junior, Infant and Nursery School we aim to create a secure and happy environment in which children will learn to co-operate with each other in their work and play. We encourage them to learn self-discipline and ask them to respect and follow our code of conduct.
ALWAYS BE SAFE
ALWAYS BE KIND AND SENSIBLE
ALWAYS TRY YOUR BEST
ALWAYS RESPECT OTHERS AND THEIR PROPERTY
ALWAYS BE POLITE AND HONEST
These rules are part of our positive behaviour policy and if children persistently break these rules they will lose privileges e.g. loss of play time. Ongoing problems will be initially discussed informally between parents and class teacher. If there are any serious problems concerning a child’s work or behaviour parents will be notified in writing by the Head Teacher and invited to discuss the problems and possible remedies.
