Rule of Law
Rules and laws
The importance of rules and laws, including those that govern our school or country, are referred to and reinforced regularly through assemblies and when reflecting on appropriate behaviour choices.
At the start of each school year, each class discusses reviews and signs the Cale Green Code. This set of principles about school life was previously drawn up by the children and it clearly articulates what is expected of and from the children. The code is clearly understood by all and seen to be necessary to ensure that every class member is able to learn in a safe and ordered environment.
The Cale Green Code
We always do our best to:
• treat everyone and everything with respect
• listen and follow instructions carefully
• be safe and sensible
• be responsible for our own actions
Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws. They understand that laws govern and protect us and understand the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when they are broken. These values are reinforced in different ways including visits from the police and fire service, during Religious Education when rules for different faiths are thought about and during other subjects where there is respect and appreciation for different rules – in a PE lesson for example. Ground rules for discussions during PSHE and Relationships and Sex Education lessons (RSE) are also agreed
A Home School Agreement is also signed by children, parents and staff. This outlines the expectations placed on us all. It was recently reviewed by the Parent Forum and additional statements, such as those around e-safety, were added at the request of parents.
