Behaviour Policy

Please feel free to download a copy of our Behaviour Policy and Restrictive Physical Intervention Policy which can be found below. Alternatively, if you require a paper copy, please do not hesitate to contact the school office on 01706 764451 or via email: These documents should be read in conjunction with each other.

At Springside School, behaviour means the way in which people conduct themselves, which is acceptable to society. At Springside, we see this as a barrier to their learning and support learners appropriately. Therefore, within daily school life and documents, ‘behaviour’ is referred to as one of the learners’ ‘Barriers to Learning’.

We believe that the key to this is developing emotional literacy, knowing different emotions, recognising them in yourself and others and knowing how to manage these appropriately. The school strives for everyone within the community to have a growth mindset.

If you have any concerns regarding the behaviour of your child or another learner, please contact your child’s class teacher in the first instance. 

Most staff in the Exploratory and Investigative Phase are qualified in the ‘Team Teach’ approach, a nationally recognised and British Institute of Conflict Management (ICM) accredited training package that includes positive handling strategies in addition to verbal and non-verbal de-escalation and behaviour support.
