Behaviour and Rewards
 

Our school behaviour policy is designed to create a stable, sensitive learning atmosphere. The system is based on a clear set of school rules and the expectation of self-discipline. High standards of behaviour are expected of all pupils; this is an important feature of our ethos.

Through the reward system, pupils are given recognition for the school’s REACH values when they demonstrate Respect, Enthusiasm, Attitude, Cooperation and Hard Work. We have a strong emphasis at Gladesmore on positive reinforcement so pupils receive frequent verbal encouragement. We like to involve parents and carers in the reward system by notifying them of particular successes.

The school has a clear system of sanctions.  We find that sanctions are sometimes necessary to remind pupils of their responsibilities. Parents/Carers and pupils should be aware that our discipline system is rigorous and we expect all pupils to adhere to the high standards expected. All parents/carers choosing  to send their children to Gladesmore, should be aware of this.

Home School Agreement 

Effective partnership and cooperation between home and school is at the heart of successful education at Gladesmore.

This outlines the responsibilities of parents, pupils and of the school in supporting the learning process.
