Starbeck School Vision

At Starbeck Community Primary School we believe that learning should be a lifelong adventure where children and adults learn together to develop the skills needed to meet the challenges that they face in the years ahead

We intend to enable our children to be happy, independent thinkers with an enthusiasm for learning and aspirations for their future.

We believe that children need to acquire basic skills and to be able to use these in a variety of different situations. Therefore we teach children to read, write and develop number skills, to use computers and explore their environment.

We place high emphasis on children being independent and being involved in their own learning. Children who can talk confidently, ask questions and who are interested in the world around them are likely to learn more.

We aim to provide a curriculum, which has a balance of teaching skills and providing opportunities for children to apply these skills. We aim to make learning fun and meaningful to children. A child who is interested is a child who will learn.

At Starbeck School we have four rules that we expect all children to aim towards:

  • To be respectful and considerate
  • To have high expectations of ourselves and others
  • To have positive relationships – working collaboratively
  • To have resilience

Children are rewarded for good behaviour by the following:

  • Stickers, verbal praise, thumbs up, smiles and comments on manners and respect etc
  • Feedback from staff in lessons and through marking and feedback in books
  • Ticks and stickers on reward charts
  • Whole class target focusing on relationships with others and having high expectations – earning a class reward
  • Star Awards - 2 per class weekly  
  • Golden Stars – will be given out throughout the week linked to a whole school target.
  • Achievement Board / WOW Wall – celebrating achievement out of school 

Children who do not obey the rules will have:

  • Verbal Warning
  • Cool Down
  • Time Out
  • Senior leaders involved
  • Headteacher - consequences

If a child persistently has difficulty following the rules, the school will contact the parents to agree how we can work together to support the child.
