Positive Behaviour and Celebrating Success Promoting a positive ethos is at the heart of what we all do. All staff strive to promote positive and respectful behaviour throughout the school. In March 2018 we created our Relationship Policy with the contribution of all stakeholders. The policy sets out clear expectations of all adults and children at Beattock Primary underpinned by UNCRC and GIRFEC principles.
We also celebrate success by rewarding ‘Star of the Week’ and ‘Learner of the Week’ certificates at our weekly assemblies. Pupils names and certificates are displayed on our Celebrating Success wall display too. We encourage children to bring in achievements/awards they have received out with school and celebrate this success at assembly.
We use a house system whereby each child is assigned to either Craigielands, Evan and Hartfell. Pupils earn points in a variety of ways, for example, working hard, effort, kindness and so on. Points are tallied up termly and the winning house gets rewarded.
Gold Rights Respecting School
In June 2018, we proudly became the first school in Dumfries and Galloway to achieve Unicef accredited Gold Rights Respecting School status. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is at the heart of all we do at Beattock Primary School. Each class creates their own charter and we ensure every Beattock Primary School pupils’ rights are met here. We are proud that our pupils are global citizens who critically engage and explore global issues and actively participate and take action.
