Meanwood Primary School Policies

On this page you will find details of Meanwood Primary School's policies which may be of interest to parents. Our school policies are regularly reviewed and approved by the Governing Body.

If you would like to discuss any of these policies further, would like a copy of any policy, or if you require information about a policy not included on this page, please contact the Head Teacher.

Attendance Policy

Excellent attendance is vital to children's academic progress at school in addition to confidence and social development. We work in partnerships with parents to ensure your child achieves a high level of attendance and will offer any support necessary to maximise each child's attendance. Please talk to your child's class teacher if there is anything affecting your child's attendance which we can help you with.

We request that parents inform us the reason for their child's absence before 9.30am. Whenever possible, appointments including opticians, doctors and dental, should be made out of school hours.

Holidays during term time are no longer allowed (following changes to the law from September 2013).

The Local Authority's Education Welfare Officer visits the school regularly and follows up any concerns regarding attendance or punctuality.

Behaviour Policy

Good behaviour is promoted through our school rules:

  • Always try your best
  • Behave safely
  • Listen to others
  • Be a good friend
  • Treat everyone with respect

Throughout school, good behaviour is promoted through positive attention and rewards, such as a smile and verbal praise, stickers, certificates, tokens towards a class treat and class dojos.

Children who break the rules are supported to make the right choices.  We use "time out" to help children think about the consequences of their behaviour.  More serious misbehaviour is referred to senior staff.

We work closely with parents if there are concerns about a child's behaviour as we know how important it is for children to have consistent messages from home and school. Click here to read.
