Positive Rewards Structure.
Our academy follows a positive rewards system in order to promote learning in class. This is in the form of stickers and certificates.
We have had success over the years by using this model.
Parents have seen large improvements in listening and behaviour at home and in school.
At Kane Academy it’s more than just punching and kicking.
Class Disciplinary Procedure
We promote pupils to have an ability to understand that their actions have a repercussion. For example in the event that little Johnny decides he isn’t wanting to listen to instructions today. It is first explained to the child the importance of listening to instructions and working as a team. If a child continues on the same path they are given Time Out and asked to think about their behaviour. After 2 minutes we allow the child back in to participate If the behaviour continues we have a further two Time Out before we call the parent to discontinue participation in activity for that day or event.
There are a number of reasons children may not follow instructions on a particular day. We always give them a second chance to take part in another occasion as we like to help families with challenging behaviour and developing self esteem.
Payments / Invoices
1. Fees are per pupil. There are no discounts.
2. Programme membership is an annual fee based on the Kane Academy being open for 45 weeks of the year and divided into 12 monthly payments.
3. If you have missed a lesson you have missed it. There is no roll over to the next week or month.
