Wellbeing and Behaviour


At Elm Wood Primary School, we hold relationships and respect at the core of our learning environment. Our behaviour and relationships policy is grounded in the principles of restorative practice, fostering a community where every individual is valued and supported.

We believe that positive relationships are fundamental to a thriving school community. Our approach focuses on understanding the impact of behaviour, resolving conflicts, and repairing harm through open communication, empathy, and accountability. We aim to empower our children to take responsibility for their actions, learn from their mistakes, and develop the skills needed to build healthy relationships.

Through restorative conversations, dialogue, and active listening, we encourage our students to express themselves, understand differing perspectives, and collaborate to find meaningful resolutions. This approach cultivates an inclusive and supportive environment where everyone feels safe, respected, and engaged in their learning journey.

Our commitment to nurturing positive relationships extends beyond the classroom to involve parents, staff, and the wider community. Together, we create a culture of mutual understanding, empathy, and cooperation, ensuring that Elm Wood Primary School is a place where everyone feels valued and connected.

Our school behaviour policy is based on 4 expectations:

Be Ready

Be Respectful

Be Responsible

Be your Best


The children are taught these expectations and work together as a class to show that they are always meeting them. When they fill their whole class Gem Jar, the class gets to choose an award. 


We also have a whole school Gem Jar where children can put individual Gems in. When this is full, we have a whole school award day.
