Fielding Primary School and Nursery



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.

Star Constellations

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:

Behaviour policy & procedures

From Summer term 2019 we will be piloting a reviewed behaviour policy. This policy is designed to offer staff a clear framework to how to manage behaviour positively and how to support the needs of all children. 

Key changes to policy:

  • Moving from the existing way of collecting stars to a more physical collection system of collecting tokens. These tokens will be 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. (see guidance on Behaviour page)
  • More detail added regarding expectations for supporting pupils with SEND. There are tighter expectations for teachers to adapt approach to children’s behaviour and support by reflecting on their needs and possible triggers of negative behaviours. There are also guidelines for the expectations for what a class teacher needs to do when a teacher different to their normal class teacher teaches them (specialist teachers, specialist club providers, supply teachers etc.)
  • The introduction of 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.
  • The reintroduction of the use of pupil lead conflict resolution to help children solve minor disagreements and issues independently.
  • The addition of scripts to recognise positive actions made by children especially when showing our new school core values.
  • Children in Reception will be placed into star constellations and will be collecting values star tokens alongside everyone else. They will be earning a Reception constellation treat each half term.
