At Crabbs Cross Academy we aim to work together to make our school a safe and happy place where learning is enjoyable and respect is shown for each person, their qualities, abilities and way of life. To do this we have a structured system in place.
Rewards for Good Behaviour
Good behaviour is always praised as this enables positive learning behaviours and sets role models for others. Rewards include a smile, verbal praise, stickers, certificates, being on the Recognition Board, visiting another member of staff or the headteacher and being chosen for our ‘Celebration Assembly.'
We have recently started to hold 'Always Tea Parties' which are aimed at the children who are always making the right choices. Children receive an invitation through the post and then attend a special tea with member of the Senior Leadership Team.
Sanctions for Poor Behaviour or Attitude
If pupils choose to break rules or show a poor attitude there are a range of sanctions. Most instances however, are dealt with effectively within class by the teacher and support staff. If necessary, further support will be implemented by the SENCo and parents/carers involved at the earliest opportunity. Please see our Behaviour Policy for further details of how sanctions are managed.
Physical Violence, Bullying and Racism
As a school we are committed to taking any incidents of physical violence, bullying or racism seriously in all circumstances.
Children are actively taught during assemblies and Personal, Social, and Health Education lessons to follow our rules and to tell an adult if they need help to resolve a problem. Concerns regarding children with behavioural difficulties are discussed with parents at an early stage. Support will also be offered to children who are subject to any form of upset. This will range from a comforting word, to mentoring support and involvement of parents, depending on the depth of the upset. Please see our Anti-Bullying policies below for further information.
Our Golden Rules are:
- We always try to do our best
- We keep everyone happy and safe
- We listen carefully
- We are polite and helpful
- We care for each other and our environment
If your child has a problem at school…
We encourage the children to always tell if they are concerned or worried about anything. Part of our Personal, Social and Emotional Curriculum encourages children to take responsibility for what happens to them, this includes ‘telling’ so we can help them.
Likewise, if there are any home matters which are causing your child concern, or if they tell you about something that happened at school which made them unhappy, please let us know. Anything you tell us will be treated in the strictest confidence and will help us to support your child.
