Favourable comments can and should be entered on pieces of work, (see Marking Policy).
Written School Reports should comment favourably on good work, behaviour, involvement in and general attitude to school life, (see Assessment, Recording and Reporting Policy).
Recognition can be given to success of differing kinds in assemblies, e.g. presentation of swimming and cycling proficiency awards etc.
Children’s work can/should be displayed as much as possible both in the classroom and corridors of the school (see Display Policy).
A visit to the Headteacher for commendations.
Specific privileges can be awarded to individuals/groups of children, e.g. in the use of school facilities, (computers, library, games equipment, etc.).
Opportunities for giving children greater responsibility in school should be fostered e.g. Playtime Pals, Monitors, School Council etc.
Above all, praise and encouragement in and out of lessons should be used as much as possible.
The Praise POD
"A culture of praise for the whole school community"
We believe that rewarding good behaviour and providing encouragement promotes a climate of consideration for others and encourages good behaviour rather than merely deterring anti-social behaviour.
Our Golden Rules underpin the life of the school:
- We have respect for ourselves and others
- We listen
- We follow instructions
- We are honest
- We work hard
