What are Year Representatives?
The system of Year Representatives works particularly well at our school. Any Sacred Heart parent can volunteer to be a Year Rep for their child's year. The role of a Year Rep is evolving to focus more on ‘pastoral care’ ie. connecting parents, buddying new families, encouraging parents’ to support in classroom and school activities, and coordinating social events that bring families together. Year representatives liaise with teachers and encourage all parents in the year group to become involved in planning and running events throughout the year.
We recently launched our school expectations and PAWS framework. Our school Behaviour Management Policy is based on the Positive Behaviour for Learning Framework. Positive behaviour is rewarded with PAWS stickers to encourage students to follow the behaviour expectations of Sacred Heart. In addition to the PAWS stickers, we have two PAWS puppies, called Brave and Hope. Brave is featured on the poster below. These two puppies visit students, when their class has displayed exceptional positive behaviour.
What does PAWS stand for?
WE ARE WISE
WE ARE SAFE
How does it work?
PAWS stickers are given if a student displays positive behaviour and these are stuck in the student's own PAWS sticker book.
