Behaviour Statement

At The Nelson Thomlinson School, we believe that good behaviour is essential to allow all our pupils to achieve their full potential. No pupil should be allowed to behave in a manner which adversely affects the learning of others.

We believe in a culture of inclusion, equal opportunities and respect for all members of our community and in the importance of self-discipline and self-esteem. Discrimination in any form should not be tolerated. We recognise that pupils with particular social, mental and emotional health needs should receive support to achieve the expected standard of behaviour.

We view as essential a system of sanctions where standards fall below an expected level. These sanctions must be applied consistently and fairly. Individual pupils’ behaviour should be monitored and their parents or carers should be kept informed.
