Promoting Positive Behaviour

Grappenhall Heys Community Primary School is committed to providing an environment where all people can feel safe, happy, accepted and included.  It is important that an orderly environment exists within which effective learning and teaching can take place.

"Pupils' behaviour is exemplary in lessons and around the school. Pupils are polite and courteous and have extremely positive attitudes to their learning."

Grappenhall Heys Community Primary School holds an important place in educating the young citizens of tomorrow so that they can take a positive and pro-active role within their community – now and in the future. To this end, we aim to encourage the behaviour of all children through promoting, recognising and rewarding positive behaviour.
