Ready to Learn

Ready to Learn:

It is about:

  • Establishing a flourishing learning environment for all
  • Teaching desirable behaviours
  • Improving behaviour support systems for learners
  • Increasing positive interactions with learners
  • Using data for decision making
  • Decreasing reactive management
  • Expectations

School-wide expectations have been developed through consultation with staff and learners. A matrix of behaviours was created and posters are visual throughout the school to reinforce expected behaviour in the differing spaces (for example general learning spaces, library, gymnasium, on field trips and so on). Time is spent teaching expected behaviours and R2L expectations are also outlined at the start of each lesson.

Acknowledgement Systems:

A junior acknowledgement system was developed to acknowledge students who demonstrate the Rolleston Spirit and are R2L. When a staff member sees junior learners displaying the Rolleston Spirit and expected behaviour they will add a virtual ‘click’ on Kamar. The clicks are linked to the school Whanau Competition as well as having individual incentives attached. 

Per term:

  • 4 entries = Whanau points

    8 entries = $2 Cafe voucher

    12 entries =$5 Cafe voucher

    16 entries = Lunch with Mrs Skelton

Learners are able to track the number of clicks they have through the recognitions tab on Kamar.
