We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.
We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.
We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.
Parkroyal supports the Rights of a Child, enshrined within UNICEF’s Convention for the Rights of the Child.
The rights within this convention cover basic needs, including education, health, being heard and experiencing a safe and secure childhood. We believe that all children should grow up aware of these rights and respecting these rights for themselves and for others. The rights of the child underpin the pupil code of conduct (School Behaviour Charters).
The pupils all contributed to writing our school charters, which have been published and are visible around the school to remind children of the importance of these rights outlined for:
After school club
Respecting these rights will form the basis of our approach to behaviour management, and sanctions will focus on reflecting on how these rights have been infringed.
Alongside positive relationships, we are aware that good classroom organisation and effective teaching methods are key to good behaviour and that the provision of a high quality curriculum, through interesting and challenging activities, influence behaviour. A welcoming and secure classroom environment gives clear messages to the children about the extent to which they and their efforts are valued.
Learning environments are organised to promote and develop independence and individual initiative, minimising disruption and uncertainty. This includes the arrangement of furniture and suitable access to resources and learning materials.
Displays aim to be current, lively and to help develop self-esteem through demonstrating the value of every individual’s contribution.
