Values and Ethos

At Chalgrove Community Primary School we expect every member of our community (children, staff, governors, parents and visitors) to behave in an appropriate and courteous manner towards each other, to be polite, thoughtful and considerate. Our school is a learning community and nobody should prevent anyone else from being able to work, learn, play and enjoy being at school.


Our approach to managing and supporting behaviour is restorative. We believe that children need support in recognising behaviours and actions to learn from any mistakes made. We use the concept of choice when managing behaviour.


We believe in celebrating and recognising good behaviour through the use of praise, recognition and rewards.


We have 3 values that underpin our ethos and expectations.
