The Phoenix Park School Policies
Code of Behaviour
We have a very clear and comprehensive Code of Behaviour in our school. Please request a copy of this policy for more information. We focus on positive behaviour and have high expectations of every child.
Everybody is our school follows the Golden Rules:
- We are gentle
- We are kind and helpful
- We listen
- We work hard
- We are honest
- We look after property
While most children respond well to our behaviour management system, there may be instances when children exhibit violent and dangerous behaviour that put themselves or others at risk of injury. All staff members are trained in Non-Violent Crisis Intervention, which enables staff to safely manage dangerous behaviour. Physical intervention is always a last resort.

Our social care workers run a formal nurture group in our school. A Nurture Group is a small class where children spend a substantial part of each week in the group but remain part of their main class, joining the other children daily for planned activities.
A bridge between home and school, the nurture room provides a welcoming and warm environment. Our room has a sofa, space for equipment for play, as well as books, worktables and computers.
The Nurture Group aims to provide a flexible and preventative resource, which is responsive to the needs of the pupils. It provides ongoing assessment and support for children showing signs of emotional stress and behavioural difficulties with the aim of enabling the pupils to access the curriculum and participate fully in school life.

Every student has the right to feel safe and secure at all times in our school. Bullying will not be tolerated. Students, parents and staff members have a shared responsibility to create an environment that is conducive to learning and free from bullying. Students are encouraged to tell an adult about any incidents of bullying that they know about.
