Ready, Respectful, Safe

At Middleton, we are 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.


We encourage our learners to be ambitious for themselves and for others, as we challenge and support them in questioning the world and in finding solutions.


We want our learners to be ready to learn, to be respectful of each other and to feel safe. Our Behaviour Policy echoes our core values with a heavy emphasis on respectful behaviour.


Rights Respecting Behaviour


All staff, children, governors and parents recognise that we have the right to learn in an orderly community in which effective learning can take place. As part of our commitment to this right, we have reviewed our behaviour policy and simplified our school rules to enable all our children to embrace them, whether they are three years or eleven years of age. Our three key rules are:


We have discussed with our children what these words mean, how they can use these words to help them in school and what their behaviour may look like when they are ready, respectful and safe. This is what they think:


· We are READY to learn – we arrive at school on time, we have our equipment ready and we sshow that we are listening

· We are RESPECTFUL – we listen when others speak and we respect the property of our ffriends and the school.

· We are SAFE – we move around school in a safe manner, we follow instructions to keep oourselves safe on school trips, we use equipment safely and we stay safe online.


We are holding weekly behaviour tea parties throughout this academic year to celebrate outstanding behaviour. Children are nominated by their peers and their teachers to and invited to spend some time in the staff room and enjoying a little treat as a reward.
