Positive Behaviour and Anti-Bullying

The focus of our school discipline policy is to emphasise positive behaviour. We use sanctions when necessary but focus on a reward system which has proved to be very successful. Our aim is to encourage the children to be  responsible and to think of the consequences of their actions.

Our rewards for good behaviour include:-

  • Pupil of the Week’ Certificate
  • Class of the Week
  • Teacher’s positive marking of work
  • Displays of pupils’ work
  • Public praise
  • ’News Flash’ Certificate

We have also established our House System, whereby each child from P1-P7 belong to a designated House (Uisce Caoimhin, Lon Dubh, Kilnamanagh or Glendalough) and can earn points.  rewards are then given to the House of the Month and the House of the Year. 

In St. Kevin’s, we take a pro-active approach to bullying. Bullying and its effects are explained through Circle Time, Assemblies, R.E. and in a wide variety of ways as outlined in our Anti Bullying Policy (which is currently being updated).

Bullying is taken very seriously by the School Management and all incidents will be dealt with in accordance with the procedures outlined in our Anti-Bullying Policy.
