Our School Council led amazing discussions in every class from Reception to Year 1 with a key focus on the following question:
Staff and children then identified the 6 responses which we felt would have the most impact in creating a positive ethos related to ‘behaviour and attitudes’ within our Calverton community. These are now displayed in every classroom and in key communal areas around our school.
At Calverton Primary School, we understand the importance of parental involvement along the journey of managing a child’s behaviour. Therefore, we ensure that parents/carers are informed once their child reaches a ‘level 2’. At this point, the class teacher will have a discussion with a parent/carer, explaining our concerns and this is followed by a letter which explains what we suggest can be done as a support mechanism, as well as what the consequences will be if this level of behaviour continues.
Level 3 – Behaviour Report Card
If a child triggers a ‘level 3’ this will result in a meeting with the Behaviour Mentor and/or the Assistant Head Behaviour Lead. This discussion will lead to 3-4 targets being agreed and these will be produced on to a report card which will be used over a 2-week period to monitor the individual child’s behaviour. The class teacher will work alongside the behaviour team to ensure that the pupil’s behaviour is discussed daily. After 2 weeks, a review meeting will take place with;
-The Behaviour Mentor
-The AHT Behaviour Lead
All stakeholders will make a decision about whether the evidence suggests that the child can be removed from the report card or a decision will be made to extend the report card for a further 2 weeks; identifying any further support that can be offered by us as a school.
Level 4-Internal Exclusion
This will involve parental support as a parent/carer will be expected to come into school and sit the internal exclusion with their child. During this time, members of the behaviour team will have discussions around:
-Zones of regulation
The pupil will also be expected to complete work which relates to the curriculum areas they are studying at that time- (class teacher provides the work).
Calverton Primary School, we celebrate our children’s achievements on a weekly basis through our ‘celebration assemblies’. These take place every Friday; Key Stage 1 at 1.30 and Key Stage 2 at 10.30. All of our children have the opportunity to gain certificates for the following:
-Star of the week
-Most gained dojo points
-Improved effort with independent learning
-Showing CPS values- (Caring, Proud, Self-motivated)
We present 6 certificates every week in each celebration assembly.
Every child from Nursery to Year 6 has been allocated a themed dojo character
and they are awarded dojo points based on the following:
-Displaying our CPS values, i.e. Caring, Pride, Self-motivation
-Displaying the values within our behaviour vision, i.e. Respect, fairness and kindness
-Working hard during independent learning activities
-Completing homework to a high standard
Join Our Dojo Community
All parents and carers are encouraged to join our school dojo community. This will enable parental involvement in recognition of children’s achievements. If you haven’t already done so, please do sign up to the Dojo system so that you can see instantly (via a mobile APP) how your child is progressing throughout the day.
-LEVEL 1 – Verbal warning
-LEVEL 1 – If low level disruption continues, then a dojo will be removed.
-LEVEL 2 – Time out in another class- SAP teachers class-At this stage a letter will also be sent out to parents/carers. A phone call will be made to explain the reason for these consequences.
-LEVEL 3 – Behaviour report- 2-3 weeks to begin. This will be reviewed. A letter will also be sent home and a phone call will be made. A meeting will be arranged.
