Behaviour and Mental Health

It is accepted that effective learning and teaching requires a safe, calm and peaceful environment. Pupils need to have a clear idea of what is expected of them, not only in terms of academic achievement but also in social situations. To help encourage positive behaviour, members of the school and community should have a clear understanding of their rights and responsibilities, and have clear guidelines for what acceptable behaviour includes. 

Please see our linked Behaviour Policy and Behaviour Management policy at the bottom of the page.

At Carlyle Infant and Nursery Academy we are committed to promoting and protecting all pupils’ and adults’ mental health and wellbeing throughout the culture of the school and curriculum.  We do this by offering a nurturing approach.  This helps us to prepare children for emotional ups and downs by teaching the necessary skills of perseverance and resilience.   As a result, children become more self-assured and ready to engage with life and learning.

There are lots of support networks both locally and online to help parents and children with maintaining a positive mental health and understanding challenging thouhgts and behaviours
