We aim to create a welcoming, caring environment where relationships are based on respect and to develop a positive self-esteem in each child.

The staff at Stanhope Primary School are committed to maintaining high expectations of good behaviour as an essential contribution to the educational experience of the children and to their happiness and well being while in school.

If there is a problem, parents are encouraged to come along to school to discuss it with the Safeguarding and Attendance Officer, Class Teacher, Social and Emotional Officer, Deputy Head or Head Teacher. Problems needing extended discussion may require a special appointment to be made so that Staff will be available to help. We expect sensible, responsible and considerate behaviour from every pupil.

The few rules we have are based on this expectation

  • Behaving in a quiet, orderly manner, both in and around the building, so that no one is disturbed or distressed.
  • Having a caring attitude towards fellow pupils, teachers, other adults, the building and its contents.
  • Only playing agreed games in the playground, games that will not cause discomfort or damage.
