At Bolshaw we believe the most important way to help a child to succeed is by giving them lots of posItive praise and encouragement. Children love to know they have done something well and it inspires them to strive for further success. Here at Bolshaw, children receive lots of verbal praise throughout the school day as well as recorded praise and encouragement throughout their books. Every class are able to develop their own reward system within their classroom that is unique to them; celebrating individual, group and class successes. This can range from stickers for individual recognition to extra playtime for achieving a whole class goal. We also acknowledge significant effort and achievement as a whole school using a range of reward systems. These are in place to acknowledge daily efforts, as well as weekly, termly and annually awards specific to different areas of school life and our curriculum.
Every Wednesday, Miss Brown will award four wristbands to children who have shown they are fulfilling our school aims and are an excellent role model to other children. These are awarded for being; a responsible citizen, a successful learner, an effective contributor and a confident individual.
Our Year 6 children help organise and run our whole school Achievement Assembly every Friday to acknowledge children’s effort, success and achievement. We have an array of rewards at this assembly.
Star of the Day – (pride and respect, one child per class each week for work and effort)
Mathlete of the Week – (outstanding achievement on Mathletics. Children who score over 200 points also receive certificates)
House Points (for attitude, behaviour and team work – awarded as Dojo Points )
Attendance Award – (every week to the class with the best attendance and least lates, pupils with 100% attendance throughout each term and school year)
Class of the Week – ( one class per key stage each week for outstanding teamwork. There also may a different focus during the year. Currently class of the week is awarded to the class with the most points on Mathletics)
For more information please read our Behaviour and Discipline policy.
Every Friday morning we hold our Circles Achievement Assembly. Our Head Boy and Head Girl lead the assembly with the help of the Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl. Over the last term the Learning Council decided how they would like to run the assembly and what they would like to celebrate.
This term we have introduced a ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ activity at the end of our Achievement assembly.
