Believe, Grow, Succeed
At Dagenham Park Church of England School we strive to inspire excellence through recognition and rewards. Our pupils are celebrated for their effort and success. We look for pupils who ‘go above and beyond’ and reward whenever this occurs, both formally and informally.
We have a set of nine learning behaviours that pupils are encouraged to display. These are incorporated into our school values of Believe, Grow, Succeed. Pupils that display these learning behaviours are rewarded with letters of commendation. We regularly celebrate pupils who have achieved BGS commendations with certificates and badges. Badges are presented by Headteacher, Mr Ash and are worn by our pupils with pride.
Full details of our expectations for behaviour and of our approach to rewards, sanctions, support and intervention can be found in our behaviour policy.
