Our behaviour policy is firmly based on being positive; we expect children to behave well and they are praised and rewarded when they do.
For positive behaviour, children earn ‘Class Dojo’ points in class for contributing in a positive fashion. Children earn one ‘dojo’ for demonstrating one of the school values or for completing their homework. Parents and carers can see how their children are getting on in class by logging in to the ‘Class Dojo’ website. Children love striving to get the points, and parents report that they enjoy being able to follow their children and the class blog that develops throughout the year.
In the classroom, we hope that our lessons are engaging in an atmosphere of trust. This is designed to encourage optimum learning and is the reason we are an ‘Ambassador’ school for The Thrive Approach. However, children do need boundaries too and on these occasions a series of stepped warnings are put in place. Children will receive warnings, time outs to ‘re-set’ and time with an appropriate adult. We actively work with parents and carers in order to ensure that excellent behaviour is the norm!.
