Therapeutic Thinking
Our overarching ambition at Barcombe CE School is to create an inclusive learning environment where children’s behaviour is not managed but is changed so that they become citizens that contribute positively to the communities they live in. We adopt a therapeutic approach to understand the barriers children may have and empower them to take responsibility and find solutions with everyone’s support. Some children may require a Therapeutic Plan to formalise strategies that differentiate from policy. Others may need a more flexible approach at times of anxiety and change or in specific circumstances. Our vision of being 'a small and mighty school where everyone flourishes in the heart of the community' lies at the heart of our policy and it is underpinned by the principles of Therapeutic Thinking.
Skylark Federation - Brilliant Learning Behaviours
In all schools across the federation, we encourage and promote the brilliant learning behaviours of determination, independence, respect, resilience, curiosity and pride. These ensure we are active, engaged and respectful learners that all take responsibility for our learning and support the learning of others.

The Governors of Skylark Federation believe that high standards of behaviour lie at the heart of a successful school. Our Statement of Behaviour Principles sets out the principles we uphold to ensure pupils' behaviour and attitudes are positive, that they show respect and a commitment to learning, and that they understand the role they play in creating a positive school environment.
