At St Richard Reynolds we aim to:

  • Praise pupils both in public and in private, as appropriate
  • Display work to celebrate pupil achievement
  • Communicate with parents about exemplary behaviour

  • Award house points and/or stickers for hard work, good behaviour and showing a positive, growth mindset

  • Display children’s name/photo on the ‘Superstar Hall of Fame’ if the children reach the ‘Superstar’ level of the class behaviour ladder

  • Celebrate children’s success in regular Celebration Assemblies

House Points
House points may be awarded for excellent effort, progress or attainment in class work, high quality thinking and questioning and high standards of courtesy and consideration for others. If a child is positioned on positive levels 1, 2, or 3 of the class behaviour chart, at the end of a school day, they will be awarded house points: 2 house points for level 1; 5 house points for level 2; and 10 house points for level 3.  The maximum number of house points to be given for any one achievement is ten.

House points will count in competition between houses, as well as individual rewards.  The table below sets out rewards for house points which will be accumulated over a school year.

Habits of Mind Learning Behaviours

Habits of Mind, created by Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick, are an identified set of sixteen problem solving, life related skills that are important for effective learning. At St Richard Reynolds we have implemented a selection of these learning behaviours over two years. Each Habit is introduced and embedded over a half term or term using a similar structure:

  • Introducing the Habit and what it means

  • Understanding why it is important and outlining strategies to support the Habit

  • Taking part in a Challenge morning, with organised activities, to apply the learning behaviour

  • Each Habit has an associated animal logo and motto that the pupils recognise
