Wishing you all an enjoyable half term break. We look forward to seeing you back at school on Tuesday 27th February. School will be closed on Monday 26th for INSET day.

At Downfield Primary School we follow Hertfordshire's Therapeutic Thinking approach to behaviour. 

This is a therapeutic approach to positive behaviour management and is already well established in many education settings and services. The approach is based on the following principles:

  • shared focus on inclusion of all children and young people within their educational settings
  • a shared set of values and beliefs
  • open and shared communication
  • a shared commitment to diversion and de-escalation
  • shared risk management
  • shared reparation, reflection and restoration
