We believe that there are always reasons for a child behaving in a certain way. It is our job to work out the reasons and support your child to communicate that reason in a more appropriate way so that they can eventually manage that behaviour for themselves.
The school has 2 policies for behaviour (available on the website: Statutory information/Policies): Behaviour policy; and Care and Control. Staff at our school are trained in Team Teach which involves the use of reasonable force to control or restrain pupils to keep a child or others/property safe. Although parental consent is not required for the use of reasonable force, as a school, we would hope that wherever possible, it would be part of the child's behaviour for learning plan which would have been discussed and agreed by parents.
We do not tolerate bullying of any kind. Pupils are taught about bullying including E-safety through assemblies, the curriculum, and on an individual basis. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are concerned about issues to do with bullying.
At Beckfoot Phoenix school we would like to introduce My Family Coach which is a tool available to support parents and carers to gain knowledge and support them to understand their children’s behaviour.
My Family Coach is a free website written by behaviour experts with 20 years’ experience working with over 5,000 schools. My Family Coach will support you through the tough times, inspire you with new ideas, and share practical tips to make parenting that little bit easier.
My Family Coach is informative and offers parents the opportunity to listen to podcasts, look at the quick reads or watch videos discussing a variety of behaviours which are free to families.
