Our ethos is to notice good behaviour and give attention to children making right choices. This is very effective in encouraging children whose inclination might be to misbehave, to be noticed for doing the right thing! We have a very positive attitude towards discipline, awarding children individual, class or whole school ‘stampers’ for good effort and attitude.
All children belong to one of four school Houses, Blue, Green, Red or Yellow. Children are able to earn their Houses points by demonstrating exceptional effort, behaviour or attitudes around the school.
The House captains work with their Houses to encourage children to earn as many House points as possible.
There are, of course, always a few children who struggle hard with behaviour in any school. For these children, we like to work closely with their parents/carers to help the children to build up their self-esteem enough to give them the confidence to make right choices.
Good to be Green Behaviour Scheme
The ‘Good to be Green scheme is an effective way of promoting positive behaviour, rewarding those pupils who consistently behave appropriately, and is a means of being able to track those pupils who find it harder to meet the school’s expected behaviour code (see Behaviour Policy).
The scheme is very visual, with child friendly resources which allow our pupils to easily see how they are doing in class. We believe that it is important to promote a positive message regarding behaviour management at all times- ‘Good to be Green’ is a means of promoting our high expectations of positive behaviour. If a child has had a bad day, they can start afresh the following day.
