Golden Rules


Ready, Respectful, Safe


At Ivington, we are committed to creating an environment where outstanding relationships is at the heart of everything we do. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same. We aim to be calm and consistent at all times in our interactions with children; this fits with the calm, quiet and productive working environment we aim to foster.

Restorative practice is key to our approach and there is an expectation that everyone develops trusting communication with one another. This includes all staff, children, visitors, parents and carers. 

All pupils and staff understand and use Bloom’s Taxonomy to support learning, and understand how to develop a Growth Mindset.  

Education at Ivington C.E Primary School is more than learning new skills and acquiring knowledge. It is about developing qualities of mind that will enable young people to grow to become happy, confident, resilient and compassionate adults. We want our children to develop, acknowledging the correlation between effort, determination and perseverance with success.

We want our learners to be ready to learn, to be respectful of each other and to be safe. We want our relationships policy and Christian Values to echo this within our Golden Rules to learning.
