Where RISE drives everything that our children do
Vision and Values
RISE drives everything that we do at Kempsford C of E Primary School. High expectations and Christian values help children to Respect, Improve, Succeed and Excel. By using RISE in our everyday lives, we aim to nurture and promote the values, skills and attitudes that will enable all children and adults to develop and respond positively to all opportunities and challenges.
Children who demonstrate aspects of the RISE ethos, through their work or attitude, are praised and rewarded in a variety of ways. Any child demonstrating Respect, Improvement, Success and Excellence will be rewarded by moving up the learning behaviour chart in the classroom.
Children who reach ‘silver’ are awarded a house point, while children who reach ‘gold’ are awarded two house points and consequently are considered for the RISE Cup in Celebration Worship. Each class has an agreed reward system including verbal and non-verbal praise, stickers, stamps, certificates and house points.
The parents of children who RISE to ‘gold’ during the week will be informed via text message on a Friday. All adults within the classroom have a role in the promotion and management of RISE, including individual, group or class rewards. Midday Supervisors support the RISE ethos through the use of stickers given to individual children for positive behaviour and play.
Our Christian Values
RISE is underpinned by our Christian Values. We promote these Values through all that we do. To keep driving forward our Vision, we dedicate time each week for the children to discuss the Values and learn how these impact on our everyday lives in modern day Britain.
Collective Worship celebrates the Values and engages children to reflect on them, taking examples from the Bible to guide how we all strive to RISE.
We hold a daily act of worship to help us realise our vision. We focus on core Values through a two year programme.
