Rules of Law

The importance of rules and laws, whether they be those that govern our school or our country, are referred to and reinforced often, such as in assemblies and when reflecting on behaviour choices.

At the start of the school year, each class discusses our three school rules which are seen to be necessary to ensure that every class member is able to learn in a safe and ordered environment. 
Our three school rules are;

  • We take pride in our learning.
  • We respect each other.
  • We care for our community.

Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves, and the consequences when laws are broken. These values are reinforced in different ways:

  • Visits from authorities, such as the police and fire service.
  • During topic lessons and in assemblies, when rules for particular faiths, rules in different countries and historical rules are thought about.
  • During other school subjects, where there is respect and appreciation for different rules – in a sports lesson, for example.
