As visitors so often remark, behaviour at St Mark’s is excellent.
We follow a code of conduct to ensure high expectations of the children’s behaviour are upheld.
At St Mark’s we are:
Rewarding good behaviour
We use the Dojo system in which we award children points for their good behaviour. Please see the grid of behaviours below, which is organised under our code of conduct, to see what you can get a ‘Dojo’ (positive point) for. Each day the points are reset and if a child gets 5 Dojos in a day they get a house point!
Supporting children to make good decisions
Within the Dojo system we can also give ‘Nojos’ for negative behaviour. This is used to look at patterns in behaviour and how we can support a child to change any negative behaviours and help them to make good choices.
Please see the grid below for what Nojos are given for.
Parents are invited to sign up to the Dojo system so they can be kept up to date with their child’s behaviour. This really supports conversations between class teachers and parents to support a child with their behaviour. We always value the support of parents and carers and feel it is a vital part of supporting children’s behaviour.
