We expect everyone to make fair and responsible choices. The school rules are there to give children clear guidance on what defines responsible fair choices. Our school rules are the cornerstone of our consistent expectations, which support and focus us in dealing with and promoting positive behaviour and relationships. Our Core Expectations and values are displayed in every classroom and group working space. They incorporate a positive anti-bullying approach to ensuring good behaviour and relationships. We celebrate individual children at the end of each term, who display our values and uphold our expectations, with a Bronze, Silver and Gold award for a child in each class. The children wear these stars with pride, knowing that they are excellent role models within the school community.
Our Core Expectations:
Each term we focus on one of the 6Rs:
Our aim is that when our children leave school at the end of Year 6, they are confident in using these key life skills and that they will continue to learn and to achieve their very best in life through living out these key values.
Chris Freeman, an ex-parent and illustrator, worked with the children in their family groups, on a whole-school project to create our beautiful Wall Art in our Hall to represent each R.
We hope that you like the paintings, which the children designed and created themselves. Each day in whole school assemblies and in our learning in classrooms we share discussions around our values, in order for our children to develop an understanding of them from the youngest age. When the Year 6 children transition to secondary school, we award each one with a Toynton teddy bear, with their name and the R that represents them the most, sewn onto its school jumper.
