Our School Teams
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
At school, every child is a member of one of four school teams. these are named after the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Learning to work as part of a team is important as it helps children develop many social skills, such as patience, empathy, communication, respect for others, compromise and tolerance. It also helps them develop confidence in themselves and trust in other people.
We are currently using the Class Dojo reward system to encourage positive behaviour in school. Throughout the school week, children can earn Dojo points by demonstrating positive behaviour such as helping others, working hard, being kind to others and making good progress during lessons.
Very Important Person (VIP)
Each child has the opportunity to be year group ‘Very Important Person’ or VIP! This is a privileged role that allows them freedoms such as wearing non-uniform for the week, lining up first for playtime and being special helpers around school. The children also bring items to share with their classmates for a special show and tell discussion. At the end of the week they are presented with a certificate, written by their classmates, that recognises why they are ‘Unique and a gift from God’ to our school community.
Star of the Week
Children are nominated by members of staff to receive a certificate that recognises their efforts during lessons or when they actively use our Christian Values.
