Behaviour for Learning

There is a clear and consistent approach to rewards across the school. This is built upon the premise that all pupils will exhibit good behaviour for learning. Pupils are rewarded for exceptional attitudes to learning and contributions to school life.

Half Termly

Two pupils are chosen from each class for exceptional and consistent, behaviour, attitude and work throughout the whole half term. Parents of the chosen pupils are invited to a ‘Stars Assembly’ and the pupils are allowed to wear non uniform for the whole day. Pupils are presented with a certificate and prize to take home.

Weekly Rewards

Class teachers choose two pupils that have been consistently been working hard.

It could be for good behaviour choices, attitude towards their learning or for exceptional work in a subject. The names are entered into a reward book, with the reason for their reward. This is celebrated in an assembly, where each pupil receives a certificate to take home with them.

In KS1 and KS2 the Learning Mentors choose two pupils from each class who have exhibited excellent lunchtime behaviour. These pupils are awarded the privilege of eating their lunch at Top Table on Friday.

Daily Rewards


In KS1 the Good to be Green behaviour system is used to motivate pupils to develop good attitudes to learning and school life.

Each KS1 class has a ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour chart.  All children have their own ‘Good to be Green’ card in a named pocket.  All pupils begin each day with a Green card.

Every day a pupil starts with a ‘Good to be Green’ Card in a named pocket.  These cards are replaced with Silver or Gold cards for exceptional behaviour.
