Our Code

Promoting Good Behaviour

In order that all children can learn in a safe, happy and attractive environment all members of the school community – children and adults – are asked to follow The Courtland Code.

THE COURTLAND CODE

The Code states clearly the School community’s expectations of the behaviour of all its members.

Through it we aim to promote learning and work in partnership with parents to encourage children’s development as caring and responsible citizens.

The Courtland Code was originally drawn up in Spring 2004 in consultation with staff, pupils, parents and governors. It is regularly updated by staff.

It explains how we promote good behaviour and respond to poor behaviour.

All families are given a copy of the Code:

Courtland Code – Autumn 2013

Playground Code 2012

Golden Code 2012

Behaviour Policy – Sep 2013

School Council

Each Year Group elects two representatives, a boy and a girl, to sit on our School Council. This provides a forum for discussion by the children of matters which are of particular concern to them. It is also used as a means of consulting with the children on relevant areas of school development.

Council members are often asked to find out what their class thinks about an issue, each year they organise the calendar for our charity fund-raising.

School council meet with our Governing Body once a year.
