'The Whalley Way'


Behaviour is guided by four basic expectations:


  • Do Your Best
  • Respect Others
  • Make Good choices
  • Be Thankful


We call this ‘The Whalley Way’.


The expectations for KS1 are shown on the poster below.




In KS2, the expectations are explained more clearly and the expectations link to our school vision statement through the key words:

  • Love
  • Appreciate
  • Achieve



These expectations are to be displayed in the hall, in classrooms and in other prominent places around the school.


They provide the rationale for all aspects of behaviour and discipline, and underpin the procedures involved in rewards and sanctions and codes of conduct.


The rules are discussed with the children and the class teacher every year on entry to a new class. Discussion of behaviour and its consequences  are revisited throughout the year, especially during worship, class assemblies, PSHE and ‘Circle Time’.
