At High Street Primary Academy we know that we pupils are behaving they are able to learn and be taught in an environment which fosters each individual’s needs. It is very important to us that the pupils are able to access their learning without being hindered by low level negative behaviours. Therefore we use a Traffic Light system to promote good behaviour and underpinning the Traffic Light system we have our Golden Rules which all pupils adhere to each day. We reward all pupils who are following the school behaviour policy and all the pupils strive to be "in gold". This means they have been especially recognised by the school community for their excellent behaviour.
There are many other ways we encourage pupils to behave well. Teachers use stickers and prizes to reward pupils who put their all into their learning each day. We have a weekly Achievement Assembly where the whole school gathers to celebrate the weeks achievements. We also reward pupils by visits to the Ivybridge Donkey Sanctuary where they get the opportunity to ride and groom the four legged friends.
Not only is behaviour rewarded but learning is too. In the weekly Achievement Assembly teachers are able to nominate pupils for a Headteachers Award for excellent learning.
When a pupil’s behaviour is under the required standard we work closely with parents to support their child and their behaviour so that they are actively engaged in their learning but also not disrupting lessons for others. We are able to access further support if necessary ensuring the individual pupils needs are catered for.
