For demonstrating good behaviour and taking responsibility at school, pupils are rewarded in a variety of formal and informal ways: Verbal praise, stickers, ‘Wows’ etc. ‘Privilege Time’ is planned into the school timetable on Friday afternoons to reward ongoing good work and behaviour. Good behaviour is formally recognised at the weekly Praise Assembly where the children receive praise for their efforts in front of the whole school.
Periods of sustained good behaviour are rewarded with extra special treats when the teacher sees fit. In addition to individual behaviour, all classes have a team/class behaviour reward system to encourage the class to work together and be proud of one another.
A child from each class will be nominated to go on the Praise Tree in our Weekly Praise Assembly and will bring home a special certificate and badge to share with you. The school council runs the Praise Assembly. Your child will be mentioned in the weekly newsletter.
High 5 Manners & Values:
There will also be rewards for High 5 Manners and Values. In the weekly Praise Assembly, your child may be nominated for High 5 Manners/Values. Their name will be added to the High 5 Manners display board and they will receive a badge in addition to being mentioned in the weekly newsletter.
Attendance is also rewarded with the class having the top attendance each half term receiving the attendance trophy and a class reward. Attendance scores are celebrated weekly in Praise Assembly. Children with 100% attendance each half term will receive a sticker.
We have a full behaviour policy which you can access on our 'policies page' and this is always explained at our class 'Welcome Meetings' at the beginning of every year. Children's behaviour is consistently monitored through our policy and class behaviour books and we pride ourselves in saying children at Dalestorth behave beautifully. The class with the best behaviour receive a trophy and reward every half term.
