Rewards and discipline

We encourage a positive approach to dealing with situations that arise in school.  We have a merit system in operation which encourages good behaviour, work and attitude.  Children receive Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards for accumulating merits.  In addition to this, our 'Special Mention Assembly' every Friday afternoon highlights the achievements of individuals and groups of children both in school and outside school.

"Writer of the Week" award is given out every Friday.  One child from each class is awarded a certificate and a pencil.  Their writing is displayed in the hall and parents are notified by text and invited to the assembly.

The ‘Golden Rules’ set out the expectations placed on the whole school family: work hard, be honest; listen to people; be gentle and respectful; be kind and helpful; look after property.  Children are rewarded for keeping the Golden Rules by enjoying Golden Time. 

We rely very much on working in partnership with parents in these matters.  If you have any concerns or 'good news' you want to share with us, please do so - and we will do the same.

Along with any reward system there must be sanctions.  As a result of this our children understand the boundaries and are aware of the consequences of their actions.
