Behaviour & Rewards
The key to building positive behaviors and habits is through a strong and well deserved reward system. Here at Oasis Academy Primary New Oak we believe that building our young people's esteem and and confidence through rewards is vital to creating a harmoneous and motivational learning environment.
Rewarding our Pupils
Positive Recognition Boards
Parent Celebration Assembly
Every term we hold a special Parent Celebration Assembly and lots of parents attend. It is an opportunity for the academy to showcase all the good work we have done every term in our termly montage. It is also a special time where each teacher selects 'the learner of the term' and presents them with a certificate. In addition, the Principal also selects one student from each class who has demonstrated how well they live out our motto to 'work hard, look smart and be nice'.

Birthdays at Oasis Academy New Oak
If it is your birthday then we want to help you celebrate! Our academy lets all children wear the special birthday badge and get first pick throughout the day on their birthdays. Children are permitted to bring in a cake or small treats should they wish, and have a special allocated slot towards the end of the day where their birthday is celebrated.
Dojo Swap Shop Rewards
As explained in the 'Rewarding our Pupils' document above, children are awarded Dojos when they display positive actions. When they are awarded enough Dojos, they can trade them in for different rewards at the Dojo Swap Shop. The rewards include prize boxes, pottery making sessions or even the chance to play Mr. Allan at Mario Kart!
The pupils run the Swap Shop and have a say in which rewards are available - donating money to charity, for example, was a suggestion put forward by the pupils.
