Ayresome School uses a system called ‘Positive Mentoring’



Incorporating the online tool Marvellous Me, the school actively promotes children’s well being and achievement. 

Each child has a positive mentoring book and a Marvellous Me account to share their achievements.

School currently issues lanyards for celebrating Reading achievements in bronze, silver and gold to mark the ‘Alfies’ Reading Challenge’ outcomes. We will shortly be moving to wrist bands for this purpose.

  • to raise standards for all
  • to motivate and involve children in their learning
  • to inform and involve parents in their child’s learning
  • children are encourage to do their best and to achieve MARVELLOUS ME points for both achievement and behaviour. These online award systems and shared with parents and carers daily and parents and carers can respond to the awards given. 
  • children are encourage to mark in their positive mentoring books uniform, attendance and reading daily.
  • the behaviour policy is listed under the core policies including the school’s approach to ‘Team Teach’ or positive handling that all staff undertake core training every 2-3 years or in the case of SEMH support staff, termly update as required.
  • all children are supported to achieve their best. If children require individual attention to improve their behaviour, they would be potentially registered on the SEND register and supported through SEND support plans, pastoral support plans or core mentors daily.  



School Houses

The children were placed in four grouped school houses named after Captain Cook’s famous ships:

  • Discovery
  • Endeavour
  • Adventure
  • Resolution

Each child in the school is paced in a house with family members. The aim of the houses is to support in the whole school a sense of smaller schools within our community and promote healthy competition and achievement for all. In the Red Hall, parents and children can see the House boards and our new forthcoming house points board will total up the points from each house half termly. Using positive mentoring assessment data, children are able to set personal targets with the help and support of their teacher. Please support your child in their efforts to achieve set targets.
