The development of our own positive learning system has begun to be developed this year by all members of Teaching and Learning staff with pupils, using the principles of restorative practice. The aim of the system is to ensure that pupils are taking responsibility for their own behaviour and learning and are developing skills which will enable them to thrive in society.
St Michael & All Angels believe that everybody has the right to be safe, to learn and to be respected. To reinforce these rights, six core values have been adopted which are:
All children throughout the school are becoming familiar with these values and are developing a growing understanding of how they can demonstrate these values in school and as members of society.
Each classroom has a values display where children who are showing particular values will be recognised by adding their initial on to the relevant board. As well as this there are learning behaviour profiles which are used to record how pupils are developing in each area. Children discuss how they are upholding the values with their peers, class teacher as well as in Worship. They also reflect on how they can improve or try to do more of the following week.
