Behaviour reward system

  • Points are collected through the Class Dojo app from Y1-Y6.
  • If a child receives a ‘yellow card’ or a ‘red card’ a sanction must be given – this can be decided by the class teacher and agreed within the year group team so it is age appropriate.

What are the children collecting the points for?

Rewards will be given out at the end of every term. All dojo points will be reset at the start of every term.

Bronze – 35 – Certificate to be presented

Silver – 50 – Badge to be awarded

Gold – 75 – Drink & cakes with the senior leadership team
