Rewards And Sanctions
The whole school is divided into 4 House Teams: Red, Blue, Yellow and Green.
Teams given points are given for various reasons:
At breaks, lunch or whole school activities points will be awarded for good or caring behaviour, cooperation, polite manners etc…
Points can be given by midday supervisors and staff on duty.

Dojo's are our individual point system.
They are awarded for good work and effort.
Each half term the Dojo points are collated on our Dojo App and celebrated in the Celebration Assembly by giving out award cards.
50 = Bronze, 75= Silver, 100= Gold, 125= Platinum.
For any children totaling over 150 team points - they can become Headteacher for the day and will receive an afternoon tea with Mrs Wright in the Summer Term.
Although we strongly believe that positive rewards and encouragement are more important than sanctions in developing good behaviour, there are times when a child’s behaviour can become unacceptable. Examples of unacceptable behaviour include:
- Refusing to cooperate with a member of staff
- Hurting another child or member of staff
- Bullying i.e. persistently, intentionally and knowingly targeting one child
- Using bad language
- Having a generally aggressive manner in the classroom/playground or behaving in a directly aggressive manner to staff or children
The following sanctions are available to members of staff:
• The child may be asked to move to a different seat
• The child may be sent to another member of staff for “time out”
• The child may be sent to the Headteacher to explain their behaviour
• The child may miss part or all of the next playtime
• The child will be given tasks to reflect on their behaviour
• Restorative actions can be taken such as apology letters
• The child may not be allowed to attend an extra-curricular activity e.g. club/visit
• Parents will be informed
As a school we will always endeavour to keep parents informed if their child’s behaviour causes any concern. For serious issues a child may be given a home / school communication book.
