Behaviour and Rewards
We run an individual merit reward system in school, more details of which can be found in our Behaviour Policy elsewhere on this website, using Class Dojo. This links to an app on parents' mobile devices. Dojo points reward all children in school, and promote good habits and attitudes. Teachers also recognise good approaches to learning and behaviour in letters, notes, certificates and so on which are sent home or awarded in class or assembly. We expect all children to follow our simple school rules:
- We are kind and caring
- We are helpful and polite
- We are responsible and ready to learn
- We are engaged learners
- We offer encouragement
Children are awarded Dojo points for good behaviour, attitudes, effort and work. Every term, all children receive a Reward Day activity. Children with higher points totals get earlier choices; children with the very highest points are treated to a special enrichment event funded by our PTA, the Friends of St Giles School (FSGS).
Additional Dojo points are given half termly via our Pupil Conferencing system, where extra points are gained for good attendance, punctuality, uniform, behaviour and so on. Children are also awarded lots of extra Dojo points every time they progress in their work to the next stage in Reading, Writing and Maths.
Please see our Behaviour Policy in the policies section. This has full details on rewards, sanctions, use of physical interventions and exclusion.
