Golden Rules

Our behaviour policy is firmly based on being positive; we expect children to behave well and they are praised and rewarded when they do.

We have six golden rules:

  1. We respect each otherwe treat people the way we would like to be treated
  2. We are honestwe do not cover up the truth
  3. We work hardwe do not waste our own time or other people’s time
  4. We look after propertywe do not waste or damage things
  5. We are kind and helpful–  we do not hurt anyone or their feelings
  6. We listen to each otherwe do not interrupt

Children earn house points for effort and achievement for their House Team and collect stickers on reward charts.

Children are allocated to one House Team – named after six Cornish rivers:

  1. Gannel
  2. Lerryn
  3. Lynher
  4. Ottery
  5. Tamar
  6. Warleggan

At Friday’s achievement assembly, one child per class is awarded a Star of the Week certificate and our lunch time assistants nominate two children for a special lunchtime award.

Children in Year 6 are trained as playground leaders and work with younger children, helping to organise games and sort out any minor disputes.

In the classroom, we follow a system of assertive discipline, which is based on being positive and is designed to cause minimum disruption to learning. For our Key Stage 2 pupils, if they misbehave, they move through a series of five discipline steps, where the fifth (rarely used) step is being sent to the Principal.
