At Short Wood we use positive policies to create a caring, family atmosphere in which teaching and learning can take place in a safe and happy environment. Our policy focuses on the positives and where positive behaviour is rewarded and whole school procedures are in place to deal with behavioural incidents. A major aim of the school policy and procedures is to encourage children to behave well by operating a system of praise and reward. This is for all children.


Lunchtimes and Break times

Where children have additional needs they may access one or more of the following lunchtime interventions:

  • One to one adult support

  • Learning mentor support 1:1 or small group

    The catering team offer a wide range of specialist dietary requirement meals e.g. dairy free/ halal meat.

    All Early Years and KS1 children have fruit provided daily.
