We work really hard at Huncoat to show the amazing behaviour from our children, whilst also understanding a wide range of needs within our school. We believe our School Values help instill good behaviour in all our children and as adults we demonstrate our School Values in all we do.
See below for some of the ways we help, support, encourage and praise good behaviour from our children:
Our Nurturing approach is one of our school drivers, where Valuing and Respecting each other, is at the heart of our Huncoat Ethos.
When our children are rewarded for their hard work, the right growth mindset attitude, for listening, for showing our Huncoat Values and for displaying good behaviours - the children earn an OWLET.
When they have 25 owlets they can go shopping in our shop for a prize, the children can save up to 50 or 75 owlets for better prizes.
Some children save over a 100 owlets and exchange these for a £5 or £10 note!
We had an Owlet Party in July - we had face painting/ penalty shoot outs/ ice lollies/ drinks/ colouring competitions - a great way to save and spend the end of year Owlets!
Good to be Green
If children display good behaviours throughout the term, they will be invited to a 'Good to be Green' Treat. So far we have had:
A visit off Santa
A snow party
A PJ, dvd and Hot chocolate morning
An afternoon at Huncoat Festival
Baking Christmas Goodies
A Nerf Battle
Watching a Magician
Dinner Time Behaviour
We work very hard at Huncoat to promote our best behaviours at dinner time. We do this by:
Support from our PE coach who plays alongside classes, prmoting manners, rules and fairness as well as enjoyment for playing together in teams
Having access to a wide range of activities ie ball games/ scooters/ mile a day track/ cricket/ skipping/ hockey
Owlets given at dinner time
Dinner Time nurture if we need it!
