Behaviour and Relationships

Our Church School Ethos

St Peter’s is a nurturing school, where every child is known as an individual and held in high regard.  Underpinned by The Church of England Vision for Education, we believe in:

  • Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills
  • Educating for hope and aspiration
  • Educating for community and living well together
  • Educating for dignity and respect


Behaviour Values

Underpinned by our vision of ‘life in all its fullness’, our Church School Values are Celebration, Collaboration, Respect, Responsibility, Service and Truth.  We strive to embed our values in all areas of school life, promoting them as a guide for flourishing in life and learning.  


Our Behaviour Values underpin the learning and social behaviours that we expect all members of our school community to demonstrate.  We are here together as part of this community - we are one school family.  Underpinned by Luke 6:31, ‘treat others as you would want to be treated yourself’, our Behaviour Values are:

  • Kindness (Be Kind)
  • Safety (Be Safe)
  • Respect (Be Respectful)
  • Responsibility (Be Responsible)

Each Behaviour Value is underpinned by a Bible verse.


  • Be Kind - ‘Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other’ (Ephesians 4:32)


  • Be Safe - ‘In peace, I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety’ (Psalm 4:8)


  • Be Responsible - Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart’ (Colossians 3:23) 


  • Be Respectful - ‘Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves’ (Romans 12:10)

Behaviour and Inclusion

As members of St. Peter’s school, we are encouraged by the lessons we see in the life and learning of St. Peter, who challenges us to ‘use whatever gift you have received to serve others’ (1 Peter 4:10).  Inspired by this, we strive to know and respond to every child as an individual.  Even in the most challenging of circumstances, we believe that every child is precious to God - and we pride ourselves in being an inclusive school.


As the image demonstrates, some children are in need of different provision from their peers in order for them to be successful.  As an inclusive school, we recognise that some children will need different strategies and support that will enable them to flourish.

Restorative Conversation

To support children to reflect on their behaviour and to restore relationships, staff will lead a restorative conversation.  This scripted conversation ensures that everyone’s voice is heard.  They also provide the opportunity to unpick what is going on behind the behaviour.  The restorative conversation supports children to reflect on the impact of their actions and take steps to put things right.  


  • Can you tell me what happened?  The child begins to reflect.
  • Who was affected by what happened?  The child begins to empathise.
  • What can we do to put things right?  The child takes full responsibility but knows you are there to support the process.


The restorative conversation, led by any adult, has the power to support children to understand themselves and each other better.  The questions and conversation help children to see another person’s point of view, while learning how to move through conflict.


Behaviour for Learning

As part of our reporting to parents, the following statements are used to demonstrate children’s behaviour for learning in every subject.


  • 1 - Demonstrates a positive attitude towards their work and learning at all times. Works hard to succeed and acts as a role model. Consistently demonstrates our school values.


  • 2 - Often tries hard with their learning and makes a valuable contribution, occasionally with support. Understands and exemplifies our school values most of the time, and is able to encourage others.


  • 3 - With support and a positive mindset, is able to show interest and apply themselves to their work and learning.  Models our school values successfully at times.
