Behaviour Support

Behaviour Statement

At Parkside we believe that good behaviour is essential to allow all our pupils to achieve their full potential. Good behaviour promotes effective learning. All members of the school community have an important role to play in its success through the consistent application of agreed rules, systems and procedures. Our Positive Behaviour & Attitudes Policy fully supports the aims of the school. We firmly believe that pupils enjoy a disciplined and happy atmosphere in which to work. This can only be established by staff, governors, parents and the pupils working together to create a relationship of mutual respect regardless of race, religion and culture.

The Positive Behaviour & Attitudes Policy Covid Update can be found here.
The New Achievement Codes can be found here.
Explaination of Behaviour Codes can be found here.
Written Statement of Behaviour Principles can be found here.

Our school has a set of Golden, non-negotiable Rules which will be regularly referred to in assembly and in class. These rules are non-negotiable.

  • We always demonstrate respect.
  • We always wear the correct uniform with pride.
  • We are polite, kind and look after each other.
  • We walk around the school quietly and never push or shove.
  • We keep our corridors and classrooms tidy.
  • We only ever use appropriate language.
  • Physical aggression will not be tolerated.
  • We do not tolerate bullying or discrimination.
  • We do not use our mobile phones on the school premises.
  • No chewing gum.
  • We only drink still water (can be flavoured) from a reusable bottle – no coloured or fizzy drinks are allowed.
  • We always bring our planner to class.

Clear sanctions and boundaries exist so that all pupils know the consequences of 'poor behaviour'.

These include detentions, referral to a stage, time out of class and being sent to the PSU or in more severe cases being sent to the Deputy Head teachers or Head teacher.

Extremely poor behaviour will always be reported to the parents, and the Headteacher and staff.

Parkside Police Cadets
7th June 2022

It gives us great pleasure to introduce our first group of fully qualified Parkside Police Cadets!

PPCs 2022 1

After a 6-week training course where topics such as forensics, road safety, cyber security and many more were covered our pupils excelled in all areas.

We were delighted to invite parents to the final parade where Chief Inspector Graham Preece listened to the children read out their cadets’ oath
and then
presented the children with their certificates.

I would like to say a huge thank you to PCSO Sharon Wison-Dixon for her hard work over the 6 weeks and most of all
to the Year 5 children who were a real credit to themselves, their families and Parkside.

Construction Projects

 The construction projects are given to individuals as part of an alternative curriculum programme. Some pupils need time on a one to one basis to discuss both the positives and negatives of the past week.

Pupils during these sessions plan, design and build items from wooden pallets.

“I like construction because I am good at it, it allows me to develop my skills, discuss the last week at school and work on projects I have thought about myself.” (KY YR8 pupil)
