Primary Academy

Behaviour and Anti-bullying

At Rushden Primary Academy we believe that teachers have a right to teach and children have a right to learn. Unacceptable behaviour is that which disrupts or prevents teaching and learning or threatens well-being. As such we have developed strategies which aim to:

  • promote good behaviour, self-discipline and respect
  • prevent bullying
  • foster responsibility for one's own conduct and the conduct of others
  • ensure that learning is a priority, and
  • identify clear steps and procedures when behaviour is not desirable and prevents learning

Below is a copy of our Behaviour Management Policy in full, which expands upon these points and outlines how misbehaviour is dealt with. All incidents of bullying, racism, derogatory/aggressive language and homophobia are addressed immediately and reported to Miss Davies.

Also attached is a copy of our SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Development) and British Values Policy. We recognise that social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is central to the education of all pupils and permeates the whole curriculum and ethos of the school.

Paper copies of both policies are available on request at
