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 Edwards. Also attached is our Behaviour Strategy.

Paper copies of both policies are available on request at
