"I have worked with the pupil’s from St Bart’s Primary School for the past 3 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with the students as they are polite, well-mannered and always make me feel so welcome."

Hannah Mulligan - Primary Choice Maker, Leeds United Foundation

"St Bartholomew Primary is a magical School full of energy, excitement and experiences. I love seeing how happy the children are to learn and how well behaved they are. The children are a credit to the School and the fantastic teachers. As an external provider, it is pleasant coming into this environment as you feel welcomed and part of the School community."

Mick Amos - Owner, HMP NOT-4-ME Education

"It has been wonderful to have so many of the St Bartholomew's pupils visit the facility, their behaviour has been exemplary and it has been a pleasure to spend time with them."

Helen Johnson - Business Support Co-ordinator, Veolia Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility

By the time pupils leave St Bartholomew’s, we not only want them to have fulfilled their ‘academic potential’ but we want confident, independent British citizens, who will be positive role models in society and demonstrate the following attributes:

  • Ambition – always aiming to better themselves.
  • Courage - they will not be afraid to try new things.
  • Commitment - they will work hard.
  • Willpower – they will strive to be the best they can be.
  • Integrity – they will tell the truth at all times.
  • Drive – they want to better themselves at every opportunity.
  • Patience – they will accept that some things take time.
  • Resilience – they will always keep trying.
  • Optimism – they know that good things will happen to them if they work hard.

Our behaviour expectations will support pupils in achieving this.

Positive behaviour is consistently reinforced everywhere in school.  The Trackit Lights Behaviour System is visible in all classrooms and points are awarded to pupils for demonstrating positive behaviour. 

The school uses a restorative approach, linking in with the PSHE curriculum, where pupils explore self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation and empathy as well as social skills. Children are provided with consistent positive encouragement and recognition when they demonstrate positive behaviour. They are supported to make the right choice and learn how to problem solve. 

Our School Rules are taught and embedded right through school, from Reception to Year 6. This creates a transparent, whole school theme which everyone strives to work towards.

All pupils are expected to:

  • Be kind, helpful and respectful towards everyone in school.
  • In class, make it possible for all pupils to learn.
  • Treat the school buildings and school property with respect.
  • Move quietly around the school.
  • Wear the correct uniform at all times.
  • Accept sanctions when given.
  • Refrain from behaving in a way that brings the school into disrepute, including when outside of school.
  • Stay inside the recognised school boundaries.

In addition to this, each class devises its own rules.  These will be appropriate to the age range of the class.  They will be discussed and agreed with the children.

Families will be expected to support their children and school by:

  • Supporting their child in adhering to the school rules.
  • Inform the school of any changes in circumstances that may affect their child’s behaviour.
  • Follow school expectations regarding attendance and punctuality.  
  • Attend meetings (including communication over the phone), regarding their child, when requested.
