At Wybourn Community Primary School, we want every member of our school community to know that they are cared for, respected and treated fairly. We ensure we invest time in every child, as an individual; supporting them to build strong, positive relationships, in which they value themselves, each other and the wider community.
We follow a trauma informed approach, recognising that there are reasons behind behaviours children are showing. To this end, our school is committed to educational practices, which Protect, Relate, Regulate and Reflect. We also draw on research in neuroscience, psychology and adverse childhood experiences from Dr Nadine Burke Harris, Paul Dix and others.
