We expect all children to try their best and work hard at school. We always encourage the children to treat each other and all adults, with respect and demonstrate the school values of Aspiration, Resilience, Kindness and Wisdom. In accordance with the rest of the school, we follow the behaviour policy whereby positive behaviours are rewarded and negative behaviours sanctioned in a way appropriate to Reception. Please see the school’s behaviour policy for further details.
Across the school, children can earn house points for their house team, whole class marble rewards and have the chance to take home a Headteacher Award certificate that will be linked to one of our four school values.
Your child's class teacher will escort their class to the classroom door at the end of the day and ensure each pupil is handed over to a parent or carer. Pupils who are not collected are sent to the school office until their parent or carer arrives. The classroom is very busy once the children arrive each morning, so if you wish to speak to your child's teacher, please chat to them at the end of the school day or leave a message in the home link booklet. If there is a change to the routine, or a different person collecting your child, please notify the school office or leave a message in the home link booklet.
Our topics this year will be:
Autumn 1- Magical Me!
Autumn 2- It's Party Time!
Spring 1- Shiver Me Timbers!
Spring 2- Ready, Steady, Cook!
Summer 1- Out and About
Summer 2- People Who Help Us
