We have high expectations of behaviour and reward children for modelling our school ethos of 'Working for Everyone'.
Amongst these rewards are Green DOJO points which children earn throughout the day for working hard individually or as part of a team, participating well in lessons, being helpful or showing kindness and compassion. The children who receive the most points in each class during the week are acknowledged in Monday's assembly and letters are sent home to parents.
House and Star of the Week Awards are also presented in assembly to children who have achieved something particularly outstanding such as really improving their handrwriting, or applied themselves especially well.
Headteacher's Awards are presented at the end of each month during a special whole school assembly. These are given to children who have been exceptional examples of our school aim to develop independent, motivated learners and responsible citizens.
When children fall below our expectations, we follow a stepped approach to the consequences which have been created by the children themselves. A log is kept and parents are nformed through yellow and blue behaviour letters. In the first instance, the class teacher will meet with parents to work together to support children in making better choices. Occasionally further support or sanctions may be necessary, then senior teachers or our school learning mentor will become involved.
A school is often judged by the appearance of its pupils and a smart standard of dress helps create and maintain a positive image.
It is with this in mind, and for the benefit of the whole school community, that the Governors insist that children closely follow these guidelines:
|Grey trousers or tailored shorts. Knee-length skirt or pinafore dress.||Grey trousers or tailored shorts.|
|White blouse or polo shirt.||White shirt or polo shirt.|
|Green WPS fleece or sweatshirt.||Green WPS fleece or sweatshirt.|
|White or grey socks. GREY tights.||White, grey or black socks.|
|In summer, green & white checked summer dress or grey tailored cullotte-shorts are acceptable.|
|Plain black shoes or sandals. |
(See pictures below for further clarification.)
|Plain black shoes.|
|Low-heeled, sensible shoes are essential as children’s feet are still developing and can be damaged by fashion shoes.||Trainers do not form part of our school uniform but children are welcome to change into them at playtimes.|
|Boys & Girls: Hair should be tied back from the face with a clip or hair-coloured band/small bow during lessons to enable children to focus on their work.||For PE, hair must be completely tied back in a plait, ponytail or top-knot, for health & safety reasons.|
|A watch and one small pair of stud earrings are permitted. ALL jewellery MUST be removed for all PE.|
