Rewards and Behaviour
At KMS we value learning and want all children to have the opportunity to achieve at school. We believe it is important that children are recognised when they achieve whether it is academically, in the sporting arena or socially. As a result we will be focusing on those pupils who bring out the best in themselves, their peers and the school.
We believe that we need to teach explicitly the behaviours that unlock great learning. The KMS Keys were devised by staff and children.
How do we celebrate expected behaviours?
To secure expected behaviours our emphasis, as a school, is on positive behaviour management with good access and challenge. Meaningful descriptive praise is powerful. Pupils can collect ‘keys’ to show how they are demonstrating and. developing good learning behaviour. All rooms have the ‘Key to Life-Long learning’ charts displayed. ‘Star of the day’ is chosen every day and a certificate goes home.
Star of the Day
Each day a child will be chosen by their teacher to be the Star of the Day. Some examples of the types of behaviour that could be recognised include but will not be limited to: showing resilience, supporting their friends, showing respect for their peers and teachers or mastering new learning.
Our Friday Celebration Assembly includes:
· KMS Key Award
· KMS Habits Award
· Head’s Award
· Writer of the week
At the end of each half term, two children from each class will be recognised for sustained and significant progress academically, socially or in the sporting arena.
In order to support children to bring out the best we have also reviewed our behaviour procedures and created a new behaviour ladder. Child who make the right choices remain at the top of the ladder. Children who make the wrong choices move down the ladder according to what has happened. There are 3 stages; B1, B2 and B3. Parents are informed if children reach B2 and B3 level and discussions had on how we can work together to prevent this behaviour from repeating. The focus will always be to support your child to make a change in their behaviour or to help us review the provision they are given so that they can be successful in class and around the school.
