The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the CPSOs and Fire Service help reinforce this message. This is backed up by a clear behaviour system, comprising of merit points and mopeys, with Yellow Forms being used as a deterrent. Our Behaviour, Exclusions and Anti-Bullying policy states clearly states the views and procedures of KFJS.
Bikeability in Year 5 teaches pupils about the law when cycling, whilst our Junior Road Safety Officers develop a greater understanding of ‘Rules of the Road’, and help the school to be safe.
Our local CSPOs help our pupils to understand about keeping safe in our local community.
Our Year 6 project ‘Crime and Punishment’ fully explores the Rule of Law, also allowing the pupils to think critically about personal responsibility and consequences – see the project leaflet below:
