Behaviour and Rights Respecting Schools
Learning with Love and Laughter
Here at the Brook Infant School we want every child to be successful in 'Learning with Love and Laughter'. We teach the children through our Sparkly Rights about how to make good choices each day.
Our six Sparkly Rights are:
- I have the right to be safe and healthy
- I have the right to have a voice and be heard
- I have a right to be different and be me
- I have a right to play and have fun
- I have a right to learn
- I have a right to be a part of this world
We have been looking at behaviour and how to help our children to be positive citizens of both our school and the community and have reviewed what we do. Please click on the link below to see our Behaviour and Rights and Responsibilities policy which we have tweaked with the help of the children. This has really helped the children know how to make those right choices each day.
In each class and around the school you will see our behaviour charter on display. The children helped develop this with their teachers and it embodies the behaviour you see as you walk around our school.
We have introduced two new awards this year - Marvellous Manners and Golden Tickets.
Each week a child is chosen who has been demonstrating that they have amazing manners. This might be for things like saying please or thank you, holding the door open, waiting for a turn or helping someone else. They are presented with a certificate in our Friday Celebration Assembly. Their photo goes on our Sparkly Fish board in the hall for everyone to see.
Our Golden Tickets are awarded for lunchtime behaviour. These could be for eating all their lunch, coming into the hall quietly, helping with tidying up, lining up quietly and saying please and thank you to staff. The children write their name onto their Golden Ticket and put it in the Golden Ticket box in the hall. These are then shared in front of the whole school during a Monday assembly and all the children who have got a Golden Ticket come out to the front.
We will continue to hand out Billy Bear for those children who demonstrate that they always keep our Sparkly Rights and children love getting onto the Rainbow in their classrooms each day.
How can you support at home?
- Model good manners for them explicitly - teach them how to say please and thank you such as at the checkout, getting off the bus or when out shopping if someone holds a door open for them.
- Celebrate and demonstrate how proud you are when they receive any of the rewards mentioned above.
