Our purpose is to raise the standards of behaviour across the school and ensure all members of staff and all the children have the same high expectations with regard to behaviour and attitudes to learning. We acknowledge that the majority of our children behave in a responsible manner and we are keen to recognise this.
Our vision is to ensure that all the children in the school make the right behaviour choice in school and work hard to meet all of the criteria of our School rules
Listening Ladybird-We listen to people
Truthful Tawny Owl-We are honest
Helpful Hedgehog-We are helpful
Kind Kingfisher-We are kind
Working Woodpecker-We try to work hard
Careful Caterpillar-We look after property,
For each class there is a ‘Achievement ’ badge which depicts the class name.
For children to gain their class badge they must demonstrate consistency in meeting the school rules. This will be monitored by all staff in school and children will be nominated to receive the award each term.
Every child will have the opportunity to receive a’ badge for each class they are in during their time at Whittington Moor, so could they could leave us with several badges! If your child is in the same class for two years running (as can happen with mixed classes) they will receive a different badge, so they will not have two the same
By the time the children are in Year 2 they may have received three badges and they can then aim for the FINAL super Headteacher’s Award. This badge is slightly different to the class ones so it makes it extra special!
When children have received ANY award they are allowed to wear their badge with pride and their photo’s will be added to the school website (with parent’s permission of course – no names).
