It is a basic requirement for learning that pupils are well behaved. We have high expectations of our pupils’ behaviour. We are proud that it has been recognised as Outstanding by Ofsted. Pupils must treat each other and their teachers with respect and act appropriately in learning environments. We maintain high standards of behaviour with teachers being consistent about routines and detail. Our teachers teach in calm and orderly classrooms - no child is ever allowed to disrupt learning.
ClassDojo is our main rewards system, outlined in our behaviour policy. The children collect points for our Five Golden Rules and attitudes to learning. The Dojo points feed into our Four Houses: St Andrew, St David, St George and St Patrick. Each term we announce the House Award to see who is top of the leaderboard! We also announce Top Dojo - this is the pupil in each class who has the most points in one term.
ClassDojo is used all around the world - over 35 million users! It really is 21st century learning! It can be accessed online or through the app. Parents can access their child's Dojo points from home to support school. At parents' evenings we go through the summary sheet with parents. At the end of the year any child who has a 100% record receives the coveted Dojo VIP Award!
