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.
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.
In every classroom there is a large poster of the keys to life-long learning. These are a collection of learning behaviours we teach, refer and reward children for. If a child is spotted demonstrating one of these behaviours they will be given a small sticky note. They write their name on the notes and stick it up with the keys. Adults collate and record the number of keys for each child for rewards.
At the end of each week one or two children from each class will receive an achievement certificate celebrating significant and sustained progress from the previous week. Again this may be awarded for academic progress, effort, respect, or achievements socially or in sport.
At the end of each half term, two children from each class will be recognised by the Executive Head Teacher Mrs Dakin 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 policy. Children who require support with their behaviour when it does not meet our expected standard will have a consultation with their class teacher after the lesson has finished discussing why they are having difficulties. A reflection form will be completed by your child and the teacher. This will occur after the lesson during part of your child’s playtime or lunchtime break. 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. If your child has been given reflection time with the teacher you will be contacted during that day to discuss concerns regarding their behaviour. At home time you will be given the reflection sheet (see links below) so that you can speak to your child about the incident and support your child with their behaviour and learning in school.
