We have high expectations for good behaviour at Woodfield Nursery School. The children at Woodfield are taught positive behaviour skills early so that they know the rules and boundaries we expect of them. This creates a safe environment where everyone is listened to and respected. Our youngest children learn from the excellent behaviour of our older children; and staff who act as good role models. We believe in using positive language and praising good behaviours. We teach our children to co-operate, share and negotiate by supporting positive language and modelling play skills through shared interactions.
If a situation arises where a child may be at risk of hurting themselves, others or damaging resources we will use appropriate interventions which may include safe handling techniques. This will be recorded and parents will be informed of any actions taken as outlined in our behaviour policy. Please talk to your child's keyperson or Angela, our Headteacher if you have any concerns with your child's behaviour so that we can provide a consistent approach. Please let us know if there are any significant changes at home that may be affecting your child's behaviour including being more withdrawn or quieter than usual.
"Children’s behaviour is exemplary. Because they are so busy and so highly involved in enjoying the activities that are provided for them, there are very few squabbles. Children are learning to share and take turns. They listen carefully to the good direction provided by the adults in the nursery and always try their best to show kindness and respect for others." Ofsted March 2013
"Children manage their feelings and behaviour very positively because they understand school rules. Staff help them to listen, think and act thoughtfully. This shows that leaders are maintaining an important strength of the school, as identified at the previous inspection." (Ofsted March 2018)
