'Family' System

All pupils at Skene Square respond well to praise and recognition. Staff recognise and praise pupil’s efforts daily.

All pupils belong to a school ‘family’ and win Family Points when they display attributes associated with our values.

The behaviours expected at Skene Square were decided and agreed upon through our Pupil Voice Forum.

Our six families are named after local streets and were chosen by our pupils.

Children collect family points over the course of a term and at the end of each term the winning family is announced.

All children in the winning family are then all given a treat. This is chosen and planned by the Family Head and Depute. Previous treats have included: a movie with hot chocolate and popcorn, Easter egg treasure hunt using QR codes, parachute games and ice lollies.


Family Heads and Deputes

Our P7 Family Heads and Deputes are chosen following the completion of an application form.
