Primary School


We have high expectations of pupil behaviour in school. School rules are clear and simple. They are for the welfare and safety of the children. We have a Smiley Face System with reward stickers given for good work, effort, behaviour and manners.All Children from Reception to Year Six are grouped into a 'Sevens' team which comprises a child from each year group, led by a Year Six pupil. The groups sit together in the same Assemblies and each week the group with the greatest number of merit certificates wins a special treat - non uniform and afternoon tea! We feel this encourages responsibility in the older children and independence in the younger ones, and the children love it! At the end of the school year the overall winners receive individual prizes.
