The Rule of Law
The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced at Kincraig. Pupils are taught from an early age the rules of the school and together the children have created their own school promises in which they follow. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind rules and laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police, Fire Service and Magistrates help reinforce this message.
To encourage and promote good behaviour, attitude and work, we have devised a reward system which is consistently followed throughout the school. We are committed to praising children’s efforts and endeavour to praise the children informally, individually, during group work, in front of the whole class and the whole school. Children are rewarded not only for achievement in curriculum areas, but for behaviour and general attitudes. These are known as Super Pupil and Worker of the Week Awards. Rewards are given in the form of merits, stickers and certificates. Children’s achievements are also recognised during Celebration Assemblies and parents are invited to attend.
