Within Dersingham VA Primary and Nursery School we have a central role in our pupils’ social and moral development, which is as crucial as our academic and creative goals. The children bring to school a wide variety of behaviour patterns based on differences in home values, attitudes and parenting skills. At school we must work towards standards of behaviour based on basic principles of honesty, respect, consideration and responsibility.
The adults in our school have an important role in modelling high standards of behaviour, both in their dealings with the children and with each other, as their example has an important influence on the children.
As adults we aim to:
 Create a positive climate with realistic expectations.
 Emphasise the importance of being valued as an individual within the group.
 Promote, through example, honesty, respect and courtesy.
 Provide a caring and effective learning environment.
 Encourage relationships based on kindness, respect and understanding of the needs of others.
 Ensure fair treatment for all regardless of age, gender, race, ability and disability.
 Show appreciation of the efforts and contribution of all.
