At The Avenue Infant School our values of Respect, Confidence, Kindness, Responsibility and Perseverance are embedded through all aspects of school life. We believe that values are learnt through the way that adults and children respect and behave towards each other. To achieve a positive atmosphere we need shared values. We seek agreed standards of behaviour from staff, parents and pupils as stated in the Home-School Agreement.

Our rules are based on principles of respect and tolerance towards others, self-discipline, consistency and safety. The central aim of our behaviour policy is to promote, encourage and nurture good behaviours rather than just to punish unacceptable behaviours.

The school has agreed three Golden Rules which are underpinned by these values. Our Golden Rules are:

Be ready
Be Respectful
Be Safe


Golden Time

Pupils have Golden time on the last Friday of the term for demonstrating the three Golden Rules and celebrating the term's successes, Golden time is a whole afternoon of different activities that the children can choose to do in any of the classrooms.

Other rewards for following the three Golden Rules are:
  • 100 ticks class awards
  • Class toy to tale home for visit
  • Values tokens for showing Avenue Values
  • Whole school value rewards
  • Termly year group values winners - certificate
  • Special Awards - in Celebration Assembly
  • Year group awards: 
    • Reception - stickers and individual certificates home
    • Year 1 - Star charts
    • Year 2 - Avenue pounds to spend in the Avenue shop
