Behaviour and Rewards        


At Fishponds Church of England Academy, we believe in positive management of behaviour through reinforcing and praising good behaviours, reflecting our school values and encouraging the children to take responsibility for their own actions.

The school's vision ' Loving to learn, learning to love' ( underpinned by 1 Corinthians 13 v 4-7) demonstrates this clearly and we have summarised what this means in 3 simple Golden Rules that all in our school community follow:


1.Love each other  as the school loves you.

2. Do your best in all that you do.

3.  Behave in a safe and thoughtful way.


We teach children how to form positive relationships with those around them through our PSHE ( Personal , Social and health education) curriculum following the Jigsaw Scheme of Work. Alongside this, our weekly collective worship sessions focus on the 12 core values of our school. Children explore what these values mean in terms of the way we should behave towards one another and as a school we have high expectations that all members of our school community uphold them. We understand that our children are learning how to love one another and therefore if or when things go wrong, we work to restore relationships and support children in problem solving their issues together. A summary of the main points of our behaviour system is illustrated in the visual below. Our focus as a school is to work together to enable all to positively engage with each other and their learning.
