Behaviour & Engagement

At Hunsbury Park, we will always model, praise and reward positive behaviour.  Behaviour is a good feature of our school where we have the culture to recognise reward over consequence. Our aim is for pupils to “be the best they can be” and by recognising positive behaviour choices, we are able to support and develop all children. Our positive choice ethos allows all children to maximise their potential and succeed within our school environment. Good behaviour is recognised first, praising the children who make the right choices and rewarding them using our whole school house points system.

House points are awarded through the Class Dojo platform. Classes work towards attaining rewards for gaining set numbers of house points.The house team with the highest number of points will be rewarded at the end of each short term too.

See the Behavioural Policy for further details.

This is supported by regular, weekly and half termly awards which praise the children’s efforts and attitudes (please see the behaviour policy for further details).

In school, we want all our children to feel safe, happy and excited to come to school. We expect excellent behaviour and good manners from all of our pupils all of the time. We know you, as parents, feel this is important too.

Unacceptable behaviour

When the rules are not followed, the children have to be able to accept the consequences of their behaviour choices. Unacceptable behaviour is managed at Hunsbury Park through a staged approach where consequences are in place. Consequences may be used to reinforce a rule.  All pupils are encouraged to be aware of the reason for rules and are given the opportunity to make amends. The children know if they choose to break the rules they have to accept the consequences. In order to help the children to make the right choices we use a consistent staged approach to behaviour (please see behaviour policy for further details).
