As a Reception team we recognise that many children are still developing their social skills and that focussed learning is a skill that needs to be practiced. We support the whole school positive behaviour policy and every class teaches the school expectations for behaviour and learning. We expect all pupils to demonstrate positive behaviour such as; taking care of everyone and everything; using kind hands, kind words and kind feet; trying their best; keeping safe within the classroom; and showing good listening when another person is talking. Throughout the school we follow a 'Secret Student' behaviour policy, this means that each day staff are given a child who is the 'secret student' if this child has followed the class expectations he or she will be asked to come up and choose a marble to go into a jar. If the class has collected at set amount of marbles each term they will be rewarded with a whole class prize/ activity for example a film afternoon.
