We regard the welfare of all children as the responsibility of all staff. The school encourages a caring commitment from all adults who come into contact with pupils. The welfare and happiness of the child is central to the ethos of Harding Memorial Primary School. Parents are a vital part of pastoral care and are encouraged to liase closely with the school regarding all aspects of their child' welfare.
We adopt a positive attitude to discipline at Harding Memorial, expecting pupils to behave in a responsible manner by showing consideration, courtesy and respect for other people at all times. This high standard of behaviour is expected inside school as well as on the way to and from school. The positive support of parents is essential in maintaining good discipline and co-operation is sought in relation to pupil attendance, punctuality, homework, school uniform and attitude towards learning. All staff are committed to the positive aspects of discipline by giving praise where it is due. Staff will always try to be fair, consistent and sensible if breaches of our Behaviour Policy occur.
