Mrs Jayne Jones leads EPCHS on Behaviour and Attitudes, and is a driving force for improving relational teaching through positive behaviour management.  Mrs Jones is a huge advocate for Trauma Informed Practices and Restorative Approaches to ensure all children and young people can be the ‘best version’ of themselves. Mrs Jones works alongside Pivotal Education to embed 5 Pillars of practice to ensure a calm, kind and safe environment for all the school community:
  1. Calm and consistent adult behaviour
  2. First Recognition for best practice 
  3. Relentless routines
  4. Scripted interventions
  5. Restorative Follow-up
Through this, the staff and students alike use the 5R’s to conduct themselves in their everyday lives :
  • Responsibility
  • Respect and Relationships
  • Resilience
  • Readiness
  • Rights
Every person at EPCHS is an individual and it is the aim of Mrs Jones’ Pastoral team to support the schools’ vision of ‘every child is known’.  Mrs Jones is also the Designated Teacher for Safeguarding.
