Personal Development Behaviour and Welfare

At Portreath School we encourage our children to follow our rules for life. Our three golden rules are:

  • Show good manners at all times.
  • Follow instructions with thought and care.
  • Care for (and respect) everyone and everything.

Courtesy, respect, good manners and consideration for others, together with self-discipline, are important aspects of a child’s education. We encourage our children to treat others as they would wish to be treated themselves. Staff expect our children to behave and encourage good behaviour in a consistent and positive way in order that our children develop a kindness and sensitivity to others, are keen to do their very best and are respectful and tolerant towards others. We encourage children to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and show how they can contribute positively to the local area and to the wider world.

British Values

An increased emphasis is given to the role that British values play in education. How well a school promotes such values is also part of the Ofsted school inspection process. Ofsted defines fundamental British values as “democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.

At Portreath school British values are promoted in much of what we do: in assemblies a broad range of themes are covered including; being a good friend, Harvest and cultural celebrations.; in our Personal Health and Social Education (PHSE) in which children are taught aspects of citizenship appropriate to age, ways in which they can stay healthy and how to make personal choices.

All staff encourage good behaviour in a consistent and positive way and children are encouraged to develop a kindness and sensitivity to others, are keen to do their very best and are respectful and tolerant towards others. We encourage children to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and show how they can contribute positively to the local area and to the wider world.
