Roxeth Primary School promotes desirable behaviour by reinforcing, rewarding and promoting good behaviour. At Roxeth we believe  “A sense of worthiness is a child’s most important need” (Polly Berrien Berends U.S Author) and we know it is vital to "educate our children and their families to achieve their full potential”. We understand the importance of educating the whole child, so they can become confident, competent, socially and emotionally aware citizens of the future. We understand the importance of treating each chid as an individual and we strive to be aware of the circumstances that affect each child’s life and we know that no one system can be applied to all children.
