Expectations and Ethos

Whole School Expectations

South Avenue Primary School is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same. As members of our community, we adhere to our school rules of being: ‘Ready, Kind, and Safe.’ 

The school has 3 simple rules ‘Be Ready, Be Kind and Be Safe’ which can be applied to a variety of situations and are taught and modelled explicitly. 

We also understand that for some children following our behaviour expectations are beyond their developmental level. In this case, these children will have bespoke positive behaviour plans which may include rewards to reinforce positive behaviour.
