Reward system

In Reception and Year One, the children use a 'Rainbow' reward system. Children begin the day on the 'Sunshine'.

Children who work hard, follow our 'Be attitudes' and rules will be placed on the 'Rainbow'. They will receive a rainbow ticket to acknowledge their achievements.

Children will be placed on the 'Raincloud' if they need to alter their behaviour. They are given the opportunity to move back onto the 'Sunshine' once their behaviour or efforts improve.
