Positive Behaviour Strategy.
The Good to be Green system Our “Good to be Green” system provides an effective way to promote positive behaviour in school. It allows for recognition for pupils who behave appropriately, while keeping track of pupils who find it harder to meet the schools behaviour code. It is a fair and consistent approach and ensures that pupils know the rules and behaviour expected in school regardless of what learning environment they are in and who is teaching them.
The school’s expectations are clearly stated in the Behaviour Policy. This should set out expected standards of behaviour, should be displayed in all classrooms and other, relevant parts of the school and shared with and explained to all pupils. The Governors expect the rules to be consistently applied by all staff and regularly monitored for their effectiveness.
We have kept the school rules clear and simple for children to remember and follow. They should see the programme as fair because it is consistent, with rewards when pupils follow the rules and a clear set of consequences if pupils do not follow the rules. Each classroom has a Good to be Green wall chart with a space for each child. Every pupil has a green card. There are yellow cards (warning), blue stop and think cards and red cards(consequence) to be used as necessary. The Good to be Green rules are also displayed in each classroom. The aim is to enable pupils to stay on the green card by supporting them in following the school rules.
Our three simple school rules are:
1. Always follow a learning or safety instruction from a known adult in school.
2. Keep your body and objects to yourself.
3. Always speak politely and be respectful to others.
