The policy on promoting positive behaviour in St. Kieran’s Nursery School has been developed with close reference to the DENI guidelines and should be viewed in close connection with the school’s policy on Pastoral Care.
In keeping with the school’s pastoral care policy the staff of St. Kieran’s Nursery School work hard to promote an atmosphere of care and respect in which both the pupils and the staff feel secure, welcome and valued and where pupils take pride in their work, behaviour and achievement.
The staff promote a positive ethos which:
Nurtures children’s self-esteem and confidence
Encourages children to value each other
Promotes a strong sense of belonging
Sets expectations of pupils which are appropriately high
