House Points System
This year in Brookfield Park we have moved to a house system.
We have 4 houses which are named after precious stones :
Each week house captains and vice captains are responsible for counting house points and the winning team is announced in our weekly celebration assembly.
Keep an eye out for updates about house team points and competitions and events!!!
Behaviour at Brookfield Park Primary School
A high standard of behaviour is essential if effective teaching and learning are to take place. We recognise and reward positive behaviour in many different ways for example rewarding house points, giving put stickers etc
At Brookfield Park we endeavour to develop and enhance self-esteem and confidence by ensuring good behaviour is carefully developed and supported. We strongly believe that all pupils and staff have a right to learn and teach in an environment that is safe, positive, happy and fair. We encourage our pupils to have ownership of their behaviour and to take responsibility for their actions – an environment of co-operation rather than control. Everyone in Brookfield Park takes responsibility for making our school a happy and safe place in which to work and learn.
Our ‘Brookfield Park Promise’ applies to all members of the school community. It is displayed in every classroom and all around school. Our ‘Code of Conduct’ provides clear expectations for all and a consistent message to ensure a whole school approach. It is referred to constantly when praising positive behaviour or discussion of inappropriate behaviour. It is embedded within everyone.
If a pupil’s behaviour at school is giving cause for concern parents/carers will be informed as we strongly believe the best way to correct inappropriate behaviour is through close links between home and school.
If staff become aware of, or have a need to become involved in, situations where a pupil may be at risk of hurting themselves or others, or if the behaviour of a pupil seriously disrupts good order in the school or causes damage to property, staff may need to take steps to intervene physically. In such circumstances staff will follow the school’s Positive Handling Policy for dealing with such situations. Any parent/carer wishing to view this policy may do so on request.
Brookfield Park Promise
We are always kind
We always show respect
We always take ownership
PSHRE - Jigsaw
Through the teaching of PSHRE we endeavour to enable pupils to gain the knowledge, understanding and confidence they need to lead healthy, independent lives and become informed, active and responsible citizens. Brookfield Park Primary School uses the Jigsaw programme for PSHRE (see link below). Pupils are also encouraged to take part in a range of activities and experiences across the curriculum and to contribute fully to the life of our school and the wider community. They learn to understand, appreciate and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
Classes carry out circle time weekly. There is an elected school council which is representative of every class in school. Pupils on the school council are involved in many decisions made in school which directly affect them.
PSHRE is taught through the Jigsaw themes. Each theme focuses on developing pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills of empathy, self-awareness, social skills and motivation. Pupils are also taught how to keep themselves safe through safety education.
