Anti-Bullying & Positive Behaviour

Our Vision


Our school vision is central to our positive approach to behaviour in school, creating a calm, learning environment: "We always aim to be that little bit better."

 Four key elements of our vision values: kindness, respect, determination and aspiration, reflect the values we want children to celebrate and which, we, in turn will celebrate with them.

This, in turn, will provide a positive, safe and happy learning environment in which everyone is inspired and empowered to achieve their full potential.

Vision Values


Our vision values are: kindness, respect, determination and aspiration.


These key messages are visible throughout the school and our weekly assembly themes are build around them.


On  Friday we hold a Celebrate Success Assembly. One child from each class is nominated for a Values Award for demonstrating one of the themed vision values of that week. Certificates are given out according to the value demonstrated, alongside House Points.

Our Rules

House Points


We have four school houses: Griffin, Dragon, Phoenix and Unicorn, led by captains/vice-captains chosen from Year 6. House points awarded alongside other positive behaviour systems in school. The house points are accumulated from classes and winning houses are revealed at the Celebrate Success Assembly.


Attendance Awards


We positively reward outstanding attendance. Our Spike trophy is awarded to the class with the highest average attendance each week at the Celebrate Success Assembly. The winning class receives an additional 10 minutes playtime on a day during the next week. Children with 100% attendance for the week get entered into a prize draw on Friday.

Class Dojo Reward System


We are currently using the Class Dojo reward system to encourage positive behaviour in school, including demonstrating our school values across the school day. Children can earn Dojo points by demonstrating positive behaviour such as helping others, working hard, being kind to others and making good progress during lessons.


Dine and Shine 

Children sit in house groups across our two lunchtime sittings. They can earn house points for their exemplary behaviour and manners. Raffle tickets are also earned for demonstrating school values at lunchtime. A draw is made on a Friday and the winning child/children earn a spot on the Golden Table for lunch with the head teacher or member of the Senior Management Team.

Behaviour Tracking


We have clear guidelines in school on dealing with unacceptable behaviour, which are displayed (alongside the school rules) in each our school.

At Seaburn Dene Primary, we are rigorous and consistent in using behaviour tracking and children are familiar with the consequences of making poor choices in our school.
