Petts Hill Primary School Behaviour Code

At Petts Hill Primary School we expect our children:

  • To respect other people – adults and children;
  • To look after our school;
  • To follow the instructions that adults give in school;
  • Our School WILL NOT TOLERATE behaviour that is hurtful to anyone.

We recognise that good behaviour needs teaching and that rules for our younger children, whilst grounded in the expectations indicated, will be couched in different terms than those of our older children. To this end we have expressed the rules associated with the expectations in age-appropriate action. Adults within the school recognise the need for consistency with regard to these expectations.
