The Governing Body and staff of the school believe that good behaviour is fundamental to success in the classroom for both children and teachers. Good behaviour results from a well planned and delivered curriculum that stimulates children to learn, ask questions, debate, and challenge themselves.
Behaviour for learning is behaviour which encourages learning to take place. Good behaviour needs to be taught, modelled and rewarded. Poor or unacceptable behaviour needs to be sanctioned.
Children learn best in an ordered environment. This can be achieved when expectations of learning and behaviour are high and consequences are explicit and applied consistently.
The school recognises that individuals have rights and responsibilities of all members of the school community, the importance of clear and consistent classroom routines which are adhered to and a culture of rewards for success.
Stars earned by pupils during the week are counted and collected by Star Leader pupils at the end of each week. Stars are converted into points for each constellation in each class - 4 points for 1st place, 3, 2, 1 for last place. Winners for this term are:
|Autumn||1& 2||Cygnus||448, 1st Place|
|Spring & Summer||2,1&2||Orion||996, 1st place|
Behaviour policy & procedures
Pupils work to collect values tokens. These tokens are given to the children for staying on green each day and for actively using values in how they learn and act. The tokens have been designed for the school from potato starch and are fully biodegradable.
In class pupils follow a behaviour hierarchy diagram that demonstrates our levels of rewards to make the consequence of good choices clear. The hierarchy demonstrates the results of negative behaviour including which behaviours will result in what sanction.
We focus on pupil lead conflict resolution to help children solve minor disagreements and issues independently.
Teachers use behaviour scripts to recognise positive actions made by children especially when showing our new school core values.
