At Telferscot Primary School we work in partnership with parents and carers to encourage good behaviour.



We expect the children to be responsible, make good choices and show respect for the whole school community.

We have the following school Rules:

  • Follow instructions first time.

  • Show respect by speaking and listening politely to others.

  • Walk quietly and calmly around the school.

  • Keep hands, feet, objects and unpleasant comments to yourself.

  • Look after Telferscot by putting things back in their correct place.

We expect parents to act as positive role models for all children when they are in or travelling to school. We would ask you to treat each other, all the staff and the children with respect.

Telferscot Primary School takes issues of bullying and racism very seriously and the Staff and Governors have put in place an anti-bullying and anti-racist policies and procedures which are available for parents to see.
