Welcome !!!

Results in national tests at age 11 remain very high: overall, they are well above the national average. The school continues to meet and exceed its challenging targets. Pupils' personal development and well-being are good. Pupils are extremely well behaved and courteous.

Aims and Principles

These aims and principles are directed towards all pupils, staff, parents, governors and visitors attending Rainow Primary School.

    informed, skilled and honourable citizens of the future.

    - To create and atmosphere of mutual respect and tolerance where children are happy, safe and learning.

    - To clearly explain what is meant by good behaviour and what is unacceptable behaviour.

    - To develop positive behavioural attitudes.

Show respect for others at all times.

These rules are displayed in the school for all children. Whole school positive behaviour is based around these rules.

Rewards and Awards

The staff at Rainow Primary School are aware of the impact of value and praise, at least 3 times praise to censure. We recognise that praise gives a boost to self-esteem, it encourages positive behaviour.

School rewards will be given for sensible, appropriate, thoughtful behaviour, effort and achievement.


School Rewards

Verbal praise

Individual reward (smiley face, house points, stamps, stickers, stars, etc. etc.)

Leaf award – for outstanding merit, for display on a "Tree of Achievement".

Using other children as examples of good behaviour

Displaying good work.

Being sent to other teachers/adults to show work.

Notes to parents in reading records

Five minutes extra playtime for upper juniors when appropriate

School Prefects

To encourage independence, responsibility and self-esteem, children who have proved themselves able to assist others in positive behaviour will be invited to become school prefects. Prefects will be determined by the Year 6 teacher.


Rewards are the best tools for modifying behaviour. However, consequences are required to teach the limit of school rules.

The Elton Report recommends that:-

"Pupils should learn from experience to expect fair and consistently applied punishments for inappropriate behaviour".

Sanctions must be fair and consistent when children misbehave. Children will choose to accept these consequences if they break the set rules. Staff are reminded that under current legislation they are limited in the sanctions that they can use. However, it may be necessary from time to time to use "reasonable force" in order to ensure the safety of the child or staff or property.

All actions are in ascending order. It is not necessary to "work through" the list.

Mild verbal warning – child is to understand why behaviour is inappropriate

Firm verbal warning with the expectation that the behaviour will not be repeated.

Repeating careless/poor work.

Being asked to carry out a punishment (tables, writing, letter of apology)

Losing free choice session.

The importance of protecting pupils from bullying cannot be over-estimated. There is therefore an additional attachment to this policy which deals specifically with bullying.
