Our School  »  Behaviour and Rewards

Good behaviour in school is necessary if effective teaching and learning is to take place. We believe that good behaviour comes from a mutual respect, courtesy and consideration for others and is based upon self – discipline. We have a behaviour policy whereby, through the use of praise, we encourage all our children to develop self esteem, self discipline and respect for others. Good learning, good attitude and good behaviour are all rewarded.

We have a  celebration assembly each Friday where children from each class receive certificates in recognition of aspects of school life. Two children from each class receive 'Stars of the Week' and further children in each class recieve a Reading or Math's certificate for individual achievements in these subjects. These pupils achievements are also celebrated on the weekly newsletter.

We have extended how we use the ‘House Teams’ to reward children both individually and collectively as part of their House. Individually children will collect house points to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Certificate. Weekly winning teams are announced in assembly and added to the newsletter. Termly winners will be rewarded with a treat for their whole House and the annual winners will have the House Championship trophy displayed with their House Team colours for all to admire.

Our school rules called ' Purple Parkside Pathways' consists of three rules which were created by staff and pupils and are displayed in school to remind us what our aims are.

Rules for individual classes are negotiated at the beginning of each year and form part of our Investors in Pupils Award.

Each class teacher is initially responsible for the children in the class and the children are encouraged to be responsible for their own behaviour. Incidents are investigated fully and dealt with in accordance with the school behaviour policy - please school policy section. In more serious cases the Learning Mentor, Deputy or Headteacher will be involved.

If a child has on-going behaviour issues at school, we involve parents at an early stage as we very much value the co-operation of parents in this matter. Staff always work very hard to establish the 'the facts' behind any issues or incidents and welcome the chance to work in partnership with the family.
