Children’s efforts are recognised in a variety of ways and achievements celebrated and rewarded:
Each week children are nominated as Learning Champions for their work, behaviour or choices and their photo is displayed on the school website. Children who are selected for this award the most times will be recognised as Broadoak Superstars at the end of the half term. See the latest Learning Champions
It is important that children’s good choices are recognised. We have a House Point system with children representing their school colour and they are awarded dojo points for following the Golden Rules in class, around the school and at playtime. A trophy is awarded to the winning colour in assembly each week and the team that earns the most points each term gets a turn on the bouncy castle. See the latest scores on the house doors
Attendance and Punctuality Awards
We value punctuality and regular attendance very highly and this is reinforced with important rewards that are shared with the families. We have a weekly attendance trophy, ‘On Time Months’ and awards for every child who has more than 98% attendance in each term and for the whole year. See the latest Attendance Awards
Golden time activities on a Friday recognise the children’s good choices and their efforts to make up for any bad choices. Each week children sign up in their classroom for an activity they want to do on Friday afternoon during Golden Time. These include keep fit, DVDs and dress up. We use dojo points to reward good choices. They can be earned and lost and we hope that every child gets to enjoy all of their chosen activity.
All children with a birthday are invited to wear their own clothes on their actual birthday and sit on a special ‘birthday table’ on Friday. This helps to promote self-esteem and makes them feel special.
As a health promoting school we are committed to encouraging our children and their families to understand and actively engage in a healthy lifestyle.
Our Provision includes:
- Water dispensers on each corridor. (Sports top bottles will be provided when a child starts school)
- Fresh fruit every day in Foundation Stage and KS1.
- Fresh milk in Foundation stage.
- Healthy school meals with a menu choice cooked daily on the premises.
- Wake Up and Shake Up assemblies and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
As a school we liaise with Tameside College and St Anne’s to provide courses for parents and adults in the community. We have provided academic courses leading to qualifications such as Teaching Assistants courses, Administration and Numeracy, which has led to some learners gaining employment. We have tried to cater for all adults, whether they’re employed or not, by offering evening courses, such as ‘Surviving Teenagers’ and ‘Positive Parenting’. Also provided are some enrichment activities such as Coffee Morning, Women’s Keep Fit and Women’s Netball. Most of these wonderful opportunities are offered free of charge and are open to all our parents and members of the wider community.
If you have any concern about any aspect of provision at Broadoak Primary School you should contact your child’s class teacher. If further discussions are required then the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher will be pleased to meet with you. If you then wish to speak with the Chair of Governors they are contactable via the school office.
Please refer to the school’s Complaints Policy on the School Policies page.
