Golden Time and Golden Rules
Golden Time is a period of time (30 minutes) in the week, when children are allowed off timetable and choose from a range of optional activities.Those children who reach the accepted agreed standard of behaviour are rewarded with Golden Time.
We have a set of Golden Rules that the children are asked to follow:
Do be gentle Do be kind and helpful Do work hard
Do look after property Do listen to people Do be honest
Should these rules be broken, we have a system of issuing yellow and red cards to pupils in Year 1 - Year 6. The child is first given a warning that their behaviour is unacceptable, and given the opportunity to improve their behaviour. If the unacceptable behaviour continues then a yellow card will be issued, which deducts time from the Golden Time. In serious instances, a red card is issued immediately, the pupil is sent straight to the Headteacher and forfeits golden time altogether for that week. A letter is sent home informing parents that the child has been issued with a red card.
Three times a year we celebrate pupils work by holding a Good Work Worship. Pupils are chosen to display their work on a board in the hall and parents are invited in to see and hear about the work that has been chosen.
Dates for Good Work Worships are included in the Pitton News.
Lower & Middle School. At the end of the school year all pupils in Reception - Year 3 are awarded a Head Teachers certificate if they have achieved a minimum number of targets over the year.
Upper School. All pupils in Years 4-6 work towards a Head Teachers Award (Mountain Path) over the course of the school year. There are 84 targets to work towards , split over the 6 terms.
Certificates of achievement are given out at the end of terms 2 and 4, and a certificate and prize is awarded at the end of term 6.
