Behaviour & Rewards

The key to building positive behaviors and habits is through a strong and well deserved reward system. Here at Oasis Academy Nunsthorpe we believe that building our young people's esteem and and confidence through rewards is vital to creating a harmoneous and motivational learning environment. 

What Kind Of Rewards Do We Use?

  • Praise – verbal, written, sticker, friendly word or gesture, referral to another adult, community tokens, certificates, star of the week, purple power star and sent to Mr Lyall or other senior leaders.
  • Special responsibility, privilege or trust.
  • Informing parents – communicating good news whenever possible, sometimes a phone call and ‘good to be purple’ postcards home.
  • Being an Anti-Bullying Ambassador or a Positive Behaviour Ambassador.

We expect children to:

  • Be Respectful, Be Generous, Be Honest and Be a Learner.
  • Work hard and to the best of their ability.
  • Talk to each other and adults politely.
  • Use calming and problem solving strategies
  • Avoid disagreements and arguments and refer to an adult for help if necessary
  • Walk when they are inside the building, play safely when outside.
  • Accept responsibility for their own behaviour – and apologise if necessary.
  • Arrive in the Academy on time each day.  Show respect for others.
  • Recognise and respect each other’s culture and background.
  • Listen to each other carefully and try to see each other’s point of view.
  • Respect their own and each other’s property and personal belongings.
  • Be patient with others.  Avoid disturbing people who are working.
  • Respond appropriately to all adults.
  • Look after the Academy building and equipment.
  • Share resources and responsibilities.
  • Concentrate on their own behaviour and not that of others.
