Behaviour and Rewards
At Dunton Green Primary School we expect all of our children to behave well in class, at playtimes and on school trips. We regularly receive positive comments, from parents, visitors and members of the community about the excellent behaviour of our children. We expect all children to look smart and to wear the correct school uniform on a daily basis. We expect all of our children to show good manners at all times.
Our behaviour policy was developed with input from all stakeholders and is closely linked to our core values.
Children have the opportunity to earn dojo points for showing the core values both for behaviour and learning attitudes. The children can be awarded a praise note which is sent home with the child for demonstrating brilliant learning or being a good friend. If children show outstanding commitment they take their learning to the head teacher who then sends a special postcard home which celebrates their effort and achievement.
The adults at lunchtime can also award positive behaviour by awarding stickers which are then transferred into dojo points at the end of lunchtime. The adults at lunchtime also nominate pupils who show exemplary behaviour and manners in the dining hall for a ‘Top table’ award. This means they get to eat lunch with the Head teacher on Monday and have the choice of squash as well as gaining a ‘fast pass’ into lunch.
During Friday Celebration Assembly pupils are selected for showing one or more of the core values and are presented with a star of the week certificate. The parents of these pupils are invited in to see their child being rewarded.
We also reward the class with the highest percentage attendance from the week before by allowing them to sit on benches and they receive the attendance cup, which they keep in their classroom for a week.
Dojo points are translated into House points and the totals are read out in Praise assembly each week. The house with the highest points total at the end of the year receives a special treat
Each half-term 2 children are selected to receive a merit badge which they wear around the school with pride. Parents are invited to this very special assembly.
