The school has a positive and inclusive approach to managing behaviour. We believe in encouraging good behaviour through a range of positive behaviour management strategies. Through this approach we aim to pre-empt inappropriate behaviour, thus enabling us to focus on good behaviour. We believe strongly in the importance of promoting and praising good behaviour.
We put great emphasis on the importance of interacting with others in respectful ways through speech, actions and relationships. We aim to provide care and support for our children and support them to learn how to manage their behaviour appropriately. We give children choices and make it clear as to the consequences of the choices they make. We believe children have rights and responsibilities
Children have the right to be safe, to be treated politely and to learn without disruption. Children have the responsibility to care for themselves, other people and their school.
We expect all adults and children to:
- Treat each other with courtesy and consideration, by treating others as we wish to be treated ourselves.
- Talk and listen to one another in order to understand and respect each other, making sure we hear all sides and do not jump to conclusions.
- Be fair and consistent to each other. However, we recognise by treating people fairly we may not treat everyone the same.
- Value, take pride in and care for the school by looking after school property and equipment.
Every child has a right to be protected from abuse and neglect. Emirates International - Jumeirah Primary School, EIS-J PS, fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect pupils and support pupils in school. At EIS-J PS, our ethos is one in which our pupils feel secure, their viewpoints are valued and they are encouraged to talk and are heard.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils and expect all staff to share this commitment.
At EIS-J PS, the Child Protection Policy has three main elements:
- Prevention: Providing a positive school atmosphere for the pupils with both teaching and pastoral support.
- Protection: The school will follow agreed procedures and ensure staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately to Child Protection concerns.
- Support: The ethos of the school should be such that both staff and pupils feel supported.
