Relationships Education & Protective Behaviours
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
Supporting children’s personal development including guiding their behaviour is a partnership
between home and school. Thank you for all the support you give – please continue!
Our reviewed Behaviour Policy – Golden Behaviour has been in place since September 2021. Children have told us what they think:
The younger children in school said;
‘We enjoy making friendship soup, learning how to be a good friend, and
learn how to listen, be patient, share and play together nicely’.
‘We feel safe and happy at school.’
Key stage two pupils talk about how to keep themselves safe, for example;
’telling a teacher or trusted adult’.
They used words such as ‘being respectful’ and ‘being kind’.
They also talked about ‘respecting each other and being kind’.
The children also shared the importance of also ‘staying safe and being kind online.’
Peacemakers is great! We play games such as ‘fruit salad’ and ‘circle mayhem’. We will be learning to be peer mediators soon.
It’s really food learning to get on well together and co-operate.
Governors came to school to talk to children and find out about what they think about the new Golden Behaviours and all activities which help their personal development.
Here is what the governors said:
‘Children could talk confidently and enthusiastically about their personal development and
how it has helped them in general and in their learning.’
‘Children are taught the skills needed to be successful such as working as a team,
being kind, talking about feelings and who to tell, making amends and complimenting each other.’
‘Adults recognise children’s specific needs and all children are provided with sensitive support.’
‘It was extremely reassuring that children feel safe in school.
Following on from the Governors visit, the children also had the opportunity to talk to adults about how they feel about the new behaviour policy and here is what they had to say:
‘Golden rules’ are fair’
‘I like the new behaviour policy and feel happy with the changes’
‘I like the ‘golden reminder’
‘’It has really helped me to change my behaviour’
‘I am really happy that I don’t have to change my card to ‘yellow’ or ‘red’
The children also had some great ideas about how to improve the Behaviour Policy further.
We thought it would be good to share this very positive report with you.
Our relationships programme links directly to our Protective Behaviours programme,
which is fully focused on keeping the children safe.
It takes place for one week in the school year – usually second
half of the Spring Term from Reception to Year 6.
Please click on the link for more information about the programme My Feelings, Friends and Family (MFFF):
At All Saints we will be focusing on providing pupils with a safe place to ask questions and offer support
which enables children to express and deal with their feeling in a positive manner.
Should you wish your child to be withdrawn from these sessions you are able to make a request in writing
to the head teacher.
At All Saints School we follow a county initiative to keep children safe called Protective Behaviours. Protective Behaviours (PBs) is a practical approach to personal safety,
self-esteem, resilience and confidence building.
Protective Behaviours has two themes:
Theme 1: We all have the right to feel safe all the time
We carefully look at the connection between rights and responsibilities.
We explore feeling safe and the recognition of Early Warning Signs .
Theme 2: We can talk with someone about anything even if it’s awful or small
This theme focuses on the ideas and effects of ‘talking’ and what might happen if we don’t.
We encourage everyone to develop their own personal networks of support,
those people they could turn to if in need.
