Looking after young children is very important and throughout Nursery and Pre-Prep this is the responsibility of the class teacher and experienced teaching assistants. Here at Queen’s we consider that the safety, security and happiness of all our pupils is of paramount importance. We teach the children about mutual respect, looking after one another, being tolerant and caring for one another; any issues are dealt with at the time, in a calm and clear manner.
There are some simple school rules which we talk through with the children so that they are sure about their roles and responsibilities and the children are encouraged to speak to the class teacher if they are ever worried about anything.

Good behaviour is rewarded by praise and encouragement. Every week, children who have performed particularly well during the week are chosen for ‘Star of the Week’ badges which are presented in assembly. 'Smiley' badges are also awarded for sport, music, ballet and other co-curricular activities. The children proudly wear their badges for that week before returning them to the class teacher. In addition, stickers are given for instant praise and encouragement so that the children immediately know how well they have done. Prizes are awarded at our Queen’s College annual Speech Day to those children in Year 2 who have made outstanding progress.
Mrs Teri Underwood is the designated safeguarding officer for the whole of the Junior School.
