We have high expectations of behaviour and reward children for modelling our school ethos of 'Working for Everyone'. Amongst these rewards are Green DOJO points - the children who receive the most points in each class during the week are added to the Golden book and letters are sent home to parents.
Our Rights & Responsibilities are reviewed annually and agreed democratically through our school council. These are then displayed in classrooms across the school and continually referred to.
To work without distraction.
To feel and be safe in school.
To be listened to and have an opinion.
To a balanced curriculum that challenges us.
To make mistakes and have a growth mindset.
To go to the office when hurt or ill.
To make friends.
To be yourself and enjoy school.
To be treated fairly.
To not interfere with others.
To walk in the quad and school building.
To not ride scooters and bikes on the school playground.
To look after school equipment and keep the school tidy
To listen and show manners.

To be honest and do our best.
To look after ourselves and each other.
To speak to and treat others with respect, and be kind.

When children fall below our expectations, we follow a stepped approach. These sanctions have been created by the children themselves and are logged in the Behaviour book. Parents are kept informed about their child's behaviour through yellow and blue card behaviour letters.
A school is often judged by the appearance of its pupils and a smart standard of dress helps create and maintain a positive image.
It is with this in mind, and for the benefit of the whole school community, that the Governors insist that children closely follow these guidelines:
|Grey trousers or tailored shorts. Knee-length skirt or pinafore dress.||Grey trousers or tailored shorts.|
|White blouse or polo shirt.||White shirt or polo shirt.|
|Green WPS fleece or sweatshirt.||Green WPS fleece or sweatshirt.|

|In summer, green & white checked summer dress or grey tailored cullotte-shorts are acceptable.|
|Plain black shoes or sandals. |
(See pictures below for further clarification.)
|Plain black shoes.|
|Low-heeled, sensible shoes are essential as children’s feet are still developing and can be damaged by fashion shoes.||Trainers do not form part of our school uniform but children are welcome to change into them at playtimes.|
|Boys & Girls: Hair should be tied back from the face with a clip or hair-coloured band/small bow during lessons to enable children to focus on their work.||For PE, hair must be completely tied back in a plait, ponytail or top-knot, for health & safety reasons.|
|A watch and one small pair of stud earrings are permitted. ALL jewellery MUST be removed for all PE.|
|Plain, dark costume.||Plain, dark trunks or shorts (mid-thigh length).|
