Behaviour

Responsibilities and Expectations

To set standards of behaviour in classrooms at Parkside, we employ a series of ‘Whole School and Classroom Responsibilities’.  These are based on long experience and were drawn up in discussions between staff and pupils. All pupils at Parkside are expected to follow the same rules for behaviour to maintain good order and safety.

The expectations are intended to protect three basic rights for all:
–               the right to learn
–               the right to be safe
–               the right to be respected.

It is important to note that the vast majority of pupils at Parkside Academy demonstrate excellent behaviour at all times and that we are one of only a handful of schools nationally who hold the “Rights Respecting School Award”.

Anti-Bullying:

Bullying, in whatever form, is unacceptable at our school and will be dealt with severely.  We believe that pupils have the right to be happy and safe, to be themselves and to enjoy peace of mind.

What is bullying?

Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group that is seen by you as an attempt to hurt, frighten, humiliate or threaten you or someone else, particularly if the behaviour is repeated or persistent.

Bullying can be:

Physical – hitting, pushing, taking someone’s belongings.
Verbal – name calling, insults, racist or sexist remarks, threatening or demanding money.
Indirect – spreading rumours, sending abusive text messages or e-mails,excluding someone from a group.

How to react:

  • Try to ignore bullies.  Walk away and do not let them see that you are upset.  Don’t give them the satisfaction of getting a reaction from you.
  • If you can, calmly stand up for yourself and ask them to stop their behaviour.
  • Try to stay with your friends and avoid being on your own.

What to do next:

Tell someone you trust.  This could be a friend, someone at home or a teacher.  Just talking to someone may help you to find a solution to the problem.

What will happen if you tell a teacher?:

The teacher will listen to you and offer support.  The teacher can talk to the person who is bullying you (if you agree) and hopefully stop the bullying.

What to do if you see bullying:

  • Comfort, support and stay with the victim.
  • Tell the victim to report the incident.
  • Tell an adult what you have seen.
  • If you are in a group where one member is bullying, show that you disapprove, because by doing nothing you support the bully.
