Culture

At Dixons Marchbank, we have cultivated a real culture of respect through our zero-tolerance policy. Our emphasis is on creating a climate where all our pupils and staff respect each other, work hard together and are all bought in to our values of commitment, enjoyment and teamwork. In this environment, teachers can teach and pupils can learn. 

We believe in instilling good learning habits from the very start of a child’s education and we have built a culture of high expectations around this.  We expect all our pupils to adhere to three simple rules: always be kind, no play fighting and no football on the front playground. We have embedded these rules into our everyday life, so pupils understand that there is a risk to breaking them, but also appreciate that there are rewards to abiding by them. 

One of our core values is teamwork. It is essential for us to be able to work as part of a team, for our pupils to support and challenge each other to develop.  A key element of driving this value is our House Point Scheme.  Every child belongs to a house and each house contains around 100 mixed-age pupils from Reception to Year 6.  During the term, house points are awarded for a number of activities, encouraging pupils to work together for the good of their wider group. At the end of each half term, the house with the most points is rewarded with a disco.
