Behaviour and Attitudes
Our Behaviour Policy gives a positive framework for all members of our school community to work within. Our pupils are well-behaved and want to learn. They value fairness and consistency, praise and reward and respond well to quality teaching and learning. They like to know they are treated the same and understand the systems that support and develop positive learning behaviours.
The Behaviour Policy will apply to pupils during the school day, on all school trips and events, on travel to and from school and at any time the student is wearing the uniform of the school. Where the Behaviour Policy is breached at other times and impacts on the education or wellbeing of pupils in the Trust, the Behaviour Policy may still be applied.
This is a whole school Behaviour Policy, supported and followed by the whole school community, which is based on our school values.
By following the ‘KHALSA’ values (kindness, honesty, achievement, love, service and aspiration) to create a caring atmosphere in which teaching and learning can take place in a safe, caring and harmonious environment.
To teach values and attributes, as well as knowledge and skills, in order to promote responsible behaviour, encourage self-discipline and to encourage students to respect themselves, others and property.
To encourage positive behaviour, by providing a range of rewards for pupils of all ages and abilities.
To make clear to students the distinction between minor and more serious misbehaviour and the range of consequences that will follow.
To record positive behaviours we use a system called Class Dojo. Our behaviour management is quick and simple to use. We are able to monitor and motivate pupils with achievement and behaviour points in seconds. Class Dojo allows us to create instant reports for teachers, form and SLT (Senior Leadership Team) and share positive news with parents via the app.
Do staff receive adequate training?
All staff, volunteers and governors undertake annual training so they are aware of school protocol, policies and procedures. This means staff know what to look out for to spot and recognise signs of abuse. Listening is an important skill in order to keep children safe and staff are able to listen carefully. Regular refresher training, helps staff to keep up to date with the latest information. As a supportive community, children know to share any concerns with staff. Parents and carers are welcome to read our policy, which is available on our website or via the school office.
Does KPS share information with other professionals?
The best interests of the children will always be our priority. As such, there are times we will need to record, monitor and share information with other agencies, such as Social Care or the police. We will share concerns about our pupils with the child’s parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that such a move would not be in the child’s best interest.
What should I do if I am worried?
If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversations heard, and report to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) as soon as possible the same day. Do NOT conduct your own investigation.
Who is in the Safeguarding Team?
What should I do if I am worried about a member of staff?
If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff then you should report this to Pavin Dhaliwal, Headteacher.
If the concern relates to the Headteacher, concerns should be reported to Gurminder Singh or Jujhar Singh, co-chairs of the Trust.

Mental Health and Wellbeing
Welcome to our new Mental Health and Wellbeing (MHWB) page. We consider the emotional health and wellbeing of our children, staff and parents to be of paramount importance. As a result, we have set up an area dedicated entirely to this worthwhile cause.
Who can I get help from?
We all have bad days, and need someone to talk to. Friends, family and teachers are great to talk to when feeling worried, stressed or even when you just want to talk to someone. At Khalsa Primary school we are committed to help and support your well-being; we as a listening ear are there for you!
Parents and Carers also play a vital role in ensuring that their child’s mental health and wellbeing needs are met. If you’re feeling sad, angry, worried and want to talk about it or just have someone listen to you without any judgment-keep us informed of any specific needs or any support required, we can help.
On this page you will find links and information covering a wide range of MHWB topics and we hope you find them to be useful.
There are many charities and organisations working in the field of mental health which could provide you with support and you can access a range of issues.
