Promoting positive behaviour and attitudes

Living. Growing, Loving, Learning
Celebrating our 'Shining Stars' - promoting positive behaviour at Piddle Valley 
At Piddle Valley CE First School, staff and pupils promote positive behaviour rooted in understanding and kindness.
We have all been inspired by the work of Paul Dix and as a whole school we focus on promoting a system that is simple but positively consistent. 
Our approach supports celebrating positive behaviour and learning attitudes through 'WOW!' displays and 'House points'. Positive behaviour and attitudes are recognised and celebrated during our 'Celebration assembly' on a Thursday morning with our children receiving a certificate to acknowledge their achievements
