Bishop Ian Ramsey Church of England Primary School

Behaviour Expectations

At Bishop Ian Ramsey C of E Primary School, we understand the importance of excellent behaviour, not only for learning but for life. We believe firmly in teaching children to become respectful, tolerant and caring members of society who can make a significantly positive impact not only in their own community but in the wider world around them.


We have three simple, easy to understand rules in school...Be READY - Be RESPECTFUL - Be SAFE. Pupils know and understand our 'READY-RESPECTFUL-SAFE' rules and try their best to follow them. Our three rules are displayed in classrooms and along corridors in school for staff and pupils to refer to (see below).

If pupils do at times over-step these rules, we have a simple 5 step behaviour system with warnings and consequences. Our 'Behaviour at BIR' system is explained fully below. 

Behaviour at BIR - Our Approach


We have a clear and thorough Behaviour Policy, which you can access below.
