We encourage pupils to achieve in a learning environment where self-discipline is promoted and good behaviour is the norm. We believe pupils will achieve their full potential in a happy, stimulating and ordered school environment.

 To promote good behaviour by forging sound working relationships with everyone involved with the school.

 To promote self-discipline and proper regard for authority among pupils.

 To prevent all forms of bullying among pupils by encouraging good behaviour and respect for others.

 To work with other academy’s to share good practice in order to improve this policy.


Our Golden Rules:

Goldenhill pupils follow 6 Golden rules

 We are gentle - We don’t hurt others

 We are kind and helpful – We don’t hurt anybody’s feelings

 We listen – We don’t interrupt

 We are honest – We don’t cover up the truth

 We work hard – We don’t waste our own or other’s time

 We look after property – We don’t waste or damage things and other people’s property.


But we also expect children to;

 come to the academy every day

 have their P.E kit in the academy (every day)

 move around the academy building calmly and quiety


Academy reward and sanction system


A serious breach of Academy behaviour policy may result in a period of seclusion from class where the pupil is isolated from their peers for a limited time. The power to exclude a pupil stems from the 1986 Act. The exclusion must be FIXED TERM, or PERMANENT.


These include:

 Verbal abuse to adults – comments, swearing or suggestions which could cause deep offence

 Physical abuse of adults

 Persistent and deliberate hurting of other children

 Persistent to defiance to adults, both verbally and non-verbally

 Persistent disregard of other people’s/school property

 Racist behaviour

 Bullying – including homophobic bullying


The power to exclude a pupil may be exercised only by the Headteacher who will use the sanction only in serious cases. The procedures for exclusion are laid down by the L.A. and the Governors. They must be followed exactly.
