At Coley Primary School, we are passionate about having a therapeutic approach to behaviour, which is fully supported by Reading Borough Council. Our aim is to promote behaviour that enables all pupils to achieve their potential and develop academically, socially, and emotionally, thereby approaching the child’s development with a holistic mind-set. We have high expectations of all our pupils both in relation to their education as well as behaviour. Staff will support this through positive learning experiences, promoting self-esteem through recognition of potential and effort, development of positive relationships with the pupils and use of positive behaviour management strategies to promote pro-social behaviours. Our strong school ethos and value system underpins everything we do at Coley Primary School where we encourage our pupils to be caring, supportive and demonstrate our values at all times. We believe this can be achieved in a safe, enabling environment where pupils feel valued, supported and listened to.
