Our ‘Golden Rules’

At St. George’s we expect all children to be well behaved and ready to learn. Remember that each new term is a fresh start. Here is a reminder of our school rules so that you know what we expect from you.

  • Treat other people how you would like to be treated.
  • Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself.
  • Always do as you are told straight away.u
  • Play your part in keeping our school clean and tidy.
  • If you have nothing nice to say – say nothing at all.
  • Respect other people and their property.
  • Walk around school quietly, on the left and in single file.

During our transition days we discussed and agreed what our class rules will be and devised a video to demonstrate how to follow them in class and around school.

Important Class Information

Homework is given out on a Monday and needs to be handed in on the following Friday. Our PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, please make sure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed on these days or taped up. Children will be responsible for changing their own reading books, we continue to expect children to read at least 5 times a week. Children will be rewarded with house points for doing this.
