Behavior / Peg System
In school we follow 4 simple rules:
- We are kind and polite to others
- We do as we are asked first time
- We keep our hands and feet to ourselves
- We respect school and our own property
Should the children break a rule they be reminded of the rule broken and their peg will be moved. Should this continue, their peg will be moved through to amber and then red. They may be sent to an alternative class before being sent to the head teacher.
When joining Bunbury all children are allocated a House Team. They will remain in this team throughout their schooling, siblings are placed within the same team. During the week can be rewarded with team points, these are monitored and discussed during celebration assembly and termly treats are awarded to the winning house. The children also work within their house teams on Sports Day. The teams are as follows:
Aldersey - Blue Edgerton - Yellow
Calveley - Red Beeston - Green
Children come together for assembly each day. From Monday to Thursday these take place in the afternoon before the school day finishes. On a Friday we hold a celebration assembly at 10am, where parents are welcome to join us. Please inform the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend.
During certain times of the school year, special services will be held at St.Boniface Church in Bunbury. All parent/carers are welcome and we ask for volunteers to help walk the children safely to and from church.
