Expectations, Rewards and Sanctions
At Hatch Warren Infant School we aim to foster a safe and caring environment for all who come into the school including children, parents, staff and visitors. Our recent Ofsted report highlighted this as one of our key strengths:
‘Pupils are happy and proud of their school, especially the way that, as one pupil said, ‘everyone is nice’ to each other.' Ofsted March 2017
A way in which we ensure this is by maintaining a good level of behaviour with clear expectations for all, rewards for good behaviour and sanctions when necessary. This is achieved throughout school in a number of ways. We feel it is important that you, as parents, have a clear understanding of what these expectations, rewards and sanctions are so that you can support us by celebrating your child’s achievements or continuing sanctions at home if necessary.
We have 5 Golden Rules that all children are taught when they start with us. They are revisited often through whole school and class assemblies and they are displayed throughout all areas of the school.
We want our school to be a safe and happy place so we will:
It is expected that everyone entering the school follows these rules. Throughout school adults use a number of different ways to encourage children’s good behaviour and reward their achievements. They also use a variety of sanctions if children misbehave. These are detailed below. Some are year group specific and this is to ensure progress over the three years your child is with us so that the rewards and sanctions do not lose their effect.
In some cases children in school require a different system for their behaviour management and reward due to personal needs; for example a child may need a sticker reward chart to earn regular rewards during the day. If this is required it is always shared with the parents before it is implemented. Your child may talk about these different systems with you as they can seem unfair. In school we learn how all children are different and may have different needs. It would be appreciated if you could discuss this with your child if they mention such things with you.
