In our recent Ofsted, behaviour was recognised as almost always good. As a school we felt we would like to reward those children who consistently demonstrate good behaviour which is known throughout the school as ‘green’. To implement this, a traffic light system was introduced across the Academy to give clear expectations of good behaviour and consequences which follow should these not be met.

Infants collect a stamp at the end of each day that they have stayed on ‘green’ and work towards a series of prizes culminating with tea and cakes with the Principal. Please click here to see a copy of the reward stamp card.
Pupils are given many high quality opportunities to develop their curiosity and creativity. They are encouraged to use their imagination, for example when thinking of ways to praise a friend, and are taught to respect the feelings and viewpoints of others.
Pupils are engaged and motivated by the way teachers present and teach the well-planned curriculum. This not only ensures that good learning takes place but makes a strong contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Teaching assistants make a strong contribution to the good learning taking place, especially when pupils with special educational needs are taught in small groups outside the classroom. They work in very close partnership with teachers and bring an additional range of helpful skills and experiences into the classrooms.
