    How one primary school acknowledges ‘the importance of giving those less visible the opportunity to shine’.

    ‘The Always Club’ – rewarding good behaviour

    S01: E10

    Petrina Poleon is Deputy Head Teacher at Cofton Primary School. In this episode, Petrina shares her concerns that well behaved children are at risk of being invisible, and how, in her school, they have devised a reward scheme that recognises children who ‘always do the right thing’.

    By creating ‘The Always Club’, children are regularly rewarded for sustained good behaviour and for being good role models. Petrina goes on to explain the practical considerations for creating an award scheme like ‘The Always Club’.

    We also hear from 3 pupils who tell us what it’s like to be part of ‘The Always Club’ and how happy it makes them feel.
