Positive Behaviour

At Rawthorpe St James I & N School we are committed to ensuring that our school environment is safe, secure and focused on learning. We value all our children and treat everyone in our school community with respect, to promote their safety and wellbeing.

Our Core Values underpin everything we do, and our school rules are simple and clear. We maintain a positive approach to discipline; we strive to be fair and consistent and keep parents and carers informed.

In every classroom there is a Butterfly system display with the related language and targets that are used consistently throughout the school.

The rewards and sanctions are set out in our leaflet. This is sent home with pupils at the start of each school year and can be downloaded below.

We aim to meet the needs of each individual and motivate pupils to be kind through specific praise, individual class marble systems, stickers, the 'golden chair', and star of the week certificates. A lovely feature of Friday mornings is our Celebration Assembly, where we share progress and successes with the whole school and the parents of our star pupils.

Here are our key documents regarding behaviour:
