Bump@r is the way we are and the way we work at Riverhead School. Our expectations enable our learners to understand what is expected of them. There are three areas of expectations which is linked to our vision of Think, Do, Discover. These expectations are school wide and form the everyday behaviours for our “Bump@r Kids”. You will often hear students stating "you're being a Bump@r kid". These expectations are the central part of how we all work and relate together.
Bump@r has an affirmation programme for children who make positive choices. These include, rewards afternoons, Bump@r Kid certificates, Honours Badge system, School Captain structure, Kids Voice crew, and School Councillors. These are all celebrated during Celebration and Bump@r Assemblies.
If learners choose not to follow the expectations we follow a whole school Bump@r consequences programme.
Each term at the Honours assembly we acknowledge a "Bump@r Kid of the Term" from the Junior school and one from the Senior school. They are rewarded for their exemplary Bump@r behaviour over the term and are presented with a prize donated by Barfoot and Thompson.
