We will support children if they are finding things challenging. Where there are concerns, school will seek to involve parents at an

early stage. Parents are expected to support the school in promoting high standards of behaviour. Whole-school Behaviour Whole-school behaviour is based on promoting the Holy Cross Values. These are: Kindness Compassion Honesty Respect Responsibility

Resilience Whole-school Behaviour All children are allocated to one of the four Houses: St Teresa - BLUE St Pio - GREEN St John Paul - RED St Mary McKillop YELLOW Every year, children in P7 are elected to be House Captains Rewards

Children can win Golden Tokens for their House by demonstrating the school values. Each week, one child from each class will be awarded the Gold Medal at assembly Golden Tokens are counted at the end of each week

the wider community. By learning about their rights our pupils, your children, also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others.

Pupils are rewarded for good behaviour by the PSAs with Owl
