  • Staffing issues including appointing the head teacher and other staff and determining salaries

Governor's Behaviour Statement 

 

HJS and Shortbrook Federation Governors want Shortbrook pupils to be well rounded, well adjusted and caring citizens, aware of the world them, conscious both of their rights and their responsibilities in that world.  We believe children learn best when they feel safe and confident, therefore, we believe in the following principles.

  • At all times all members of our school community are expected to be the best that they can be to create a positive, safe and caring environment.
  • When wrong choices are made and poor behavior results, the key words for dealing with the behavior are fairness and consistency.
  • We all have a calm attitude, identify as many positives as possible and consistently give praise.
  • We care about our children so when necessary, appropriate support will be put in place to enable them to learn new and better ways of being behaved.
  • Poor behavior will have consequences consistently applied.  However, this is always followed by a fresh start.  Some children may need many fresh starts, we never give up on anyone.
  • Every member of our school community should aim high, believe in themselves and each other and respect themselves and each other.
