At Ratby Primary School we believe pupils should be rewarded both collectively and individually. Therefore we operate two systems of reward. Individually, children can earn and lose Class Dojo Points as well as earning House Points.
We have a code of conduct known as our ‘Good to be Green Rules’ derived through discussion with the children and which we expect every member of school to uphold. The ‘Good to be Green’ rules have been formulated with the safety and well-being of the children in mind, and to enable the school to function efficiently as a place of learning.
Our Code of Conduct is:
· We try our best and never give up
· We listen carefully to others without interrupting.
· We are kind and helpful.
· We are always honest and tell the truth
· We keep ourselves and other safe.
· We are polite to everyone.
The ‘Good to be Green’ system has a 3 tier intervention behaviour management system in class – verbal warning, yellow warning and red consequence. This ties in conveniently with the “Good to be Green” cards. Children given a yellow consequence card will lose 2 Dojo points and those given a red consequence card will lose 5 Dojo points.
Class Dojo points are awarded by a member of staff online at www.classdojo.com. Children can watch as their points grow. Ultimately, the ‘instant’ and ‘fun’ nature of Dojo points is in the best interest of children. Pupils are awarded certificates and a wrist band for the number of Dojo points they receive, individually: 150 (Bronze), 300 (Silver), 450 (Gold).
In addition, when pupils receive a Class Dojo point they also earn a house point for their House. Further details regarding our houses can be found on the House Point System page.
