At Walton-le-dale, we aim to provide an education for all students free from disruption, and that enables the school to focus on improving outcomes for all students. Research shows that good behaviour must be explicitly taught and modelled by all.  

This behaviour curriculum explains to everyone in school, clear expectations under the overarching behaviour principles of being ready to learn, respectful of everyone and being safe in school.  The principle of a behaviour curriculum is to create a positive ethos around school and a culture where we have high expectations of our students. This will create better relationships, a consistent environment from classroom to classroom and support all students no matter what ability or learning need.   


We feel that the behaviour curriculum will: 


  • Simplify a student's day in school by having the same keystone routines and rules in every classroom so it's easy to know our expectations 
  • Will teach students how to behave not just expect them to know.  
  • Will make school a calmer and safer place for all to learn.  
  • Will make students able to understand their own  behaviour and learn how to improve it.
