Our Behaviour Policy is built upon the ‘5 pillars of Pivotal Practice’ (‘When Adults Change, Everything Changes’, Paul Dix):

  • Consistent, calm adult behaviour,

  • Relentless Routines,

  • First attention to best conduct,

  • Scripting difficult conversations,

  • Restorative Follow-up.


We have three simple goals: Be safe, Be a Learner, Be Kind and Respectful.


Our Behaviour Policy 2021-2022

Charter Awards









Each week, we award children with our Charter Award.  These awards are given to the children who have displayed excellent behaviour and followed our Behaviour Charter.  These awards are given during our weekly Praise Assembly.

Class Dojo

We use Class Dojo to create a positive culture in our school.  We reward our children for their efforts in their learning, for acts of kindness and for being safe - all in line with our Behaviour Policy.  Skills and values such as resilience, helping others, active listening and respect are noticed and rewarded by every member of staff.


Parents can join Class Dojo to see rewards and to see important information about class events.  Parents can send and receive direct messages from the teacher and collaborate in their child's education.


More information can be found on the Class Dojo website.


Dojo Winners

Our weekly Dojo winners win a certificate, which is awarded in our Praise assembly.

House points

We have House Captains for our House teams: 

St. Joseph, St. (Mother) Teresa, St. Bernadette and St. Gerard Majella










Dojos from each class are collected by our House Captains each week.  The team with the most Dojos each week, wins the House point trophy.  The captains proudly decorate the trophy with the house rosette.
