Behaviour, Attendance and Complaints


At Beam, we expect all members of the community to treat each other with mutual respect and take responsibility for our own actions. We expect our children to be kind and considerate to one another and to learn from our mistakes. We work in partnership with you to ensure your child is safe and ready to learn. The governing body takes behaviour seriously and recognise that we must promote behaviours which enable our children to succeed in their future lives.

Beam County Primary School is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same. Our behaviour policy guides staff to teach self-discipline not blind compliance. It echoes our core values with a heavy emphasis on respectful behaviour, a partnership approach to managing poor conduct and dynamic interventions that support staff and learners.

The school has 3 simple rules ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’ which can be applied to a variety of situations and are taught and modelled explicitly.
