CELEBRATION OF SUCCESS
Every opportunity is taken to praise and reward every child by all staff. In addition to daily praise we hold weekly Achievement assemblies where achievement is recognised in different ways, including: Tidy Classroom, Class attendance and Star pupil awards. A variety of individual awards as shared through the ‘Marvellous me’ App. For log-in details please ask the class teacher.
Every child is in a house team – red, blue, yellow, and green. Siblings will be in the same team. Children’s points are collected for good work, being helpful, good behaviour and participation in House team events are added to their teams points with a rewards day and cup for the winning team at the end of the year. Pupils also receive a Top Trump card for every 50 points collected and for specific achievements across the school year (100% attendance for a term, Competition winners).
At the end of the year further awards are given for progress; attainment; creativity; science, technology and design; sporting contribution, character and Overall Performance during the Annual Achievement Assembly.
MANAGEMENT OF BEHAVIOUR
We believe that school should be a happy, safe and secure place where all individuals value themselves and have respect for others as well as the environment.
Every member of staff contributes to helping children achieve high, but realistic, standards of behaviour within a positive setting. School does have a number of rules, which ensures children’s well-being, and on admission each family are required to complete a home-school agreement which details our expectations. These are part of a system where praise, encouragement and reward are used to reinforce good behaviour.
When anti-social behaviour does occur it is dealt with immediately. Children may have a sanction placed against them, but opportunities are always made for discussion as a means of learning. We have a policy in place which covers incident reporting and investigation. We ensure that all children are treated fairly and as individuals. Consultation with all parties concerned is actively encouraged.
