Most of the rules deal with safety, movement around the school and thoughtfulness towards others. Children will be made familiar with them as the need arises.
Discipline is mainly instilled by hard work in a stimulating, happy and caring environment. Children are expected to show increasing development of self discipline and control. Children are given verbal guidance on the behaviour expected of them and are required to act responsibly and take a pride in themselves, the school and the village.
Should there be a persistent problem with a child; the school will contact the parents so that the problem can be resolved. The school looks for full support from parents in the matter of discipline.
We are fortunate that the vast majority of our children behave very well as we do set high standards.
Our school motto is –
WORK HARD, BE KIND, ACHIEVE
We expect our children to –
Be polite and well mannered.
Try to understand other people’s points of view.
Learn to show self discipline.
Listen to adults when they are speaking.
Show respect for people and property.
A range of awards including stickers or stamps are awarded for good work and consistent behaviour. Certificates for Star of the week are given out weekly in our Celebration Assembly each Friday.
We also have “Surfs” that we hand out to children and a “Golden Surf” that is presented to a child or children in the Friday Celebration Assembly, for going above and beyond! We have a Surf shop that is open once a month and the children can save their Surfs to purchase merchandise that is kindly donated by the PTFA.
Praise and encouragement is always used in lessons and children are rewarded for their individual efforts as often as possible.
