Behaviour

Behaviour Management & Development

We strive to develop a school environment and ethos that promotes and is characterised by good behaviour and manners and respect for others. We have developed a procedural policy that deals effectively with any incidents of poor behaviour that may occur from time to time despite our positive-behaviour-inclined environment. We aim, as a school, to produce a safe and secure environment where all can learn without anxiety, an environment which encourages and reinforces good behaviour. 

 

Rules and Procedures

The rules and procedures in place are designed to make clear the standards of behaviour that are acceptable at our school. Children are made aware of such expectations throughout the academic year in the form of displayed classroom, playground and lunchtime rules, PSCHE/SEAL lessons, circle time and assemblies. 

All staff members use consistently the following phrases to establish the school climate for behaviour:

  1. respectful and kind
  2. silent corridors
  3. silent staircases
  4. straight silent lines
  5. hands and feet to ourselves
  6. say what is good or keep silent

Rewards

Rewards Our reward system acts as a positive reinforcement of good behaviour. An abundance of praise is used both for the individual, groups and classes as a whole. We always aim to encourage good behaviour and work by praising such and avoid criticising unacceptable behaviour, in an attempt to avoid highlighting it. In practice this means a member of staff will often encourage all children to act in an appropriate way by praising those who are already behaving in that way. The praise takes the form of the member of staff directing other children’s attention to those whose behaviour is exemplary. The member of staff praises a child, group or class and states why they have received the praise. This reinforces to the other children the behaviour that is desirable. The praise is sometimes accompanied by a reward for the child, group or class. We recognise that rewards are a much more effective means of eliciting good behaviour than sanctions, though both are necessary.

The Star Chart

Stars are awarded to children for either good academic effort or for good behaviour within and outside the classroom. The star is stuck on to the displayed star chart in the classroom under the pupil’s name. Every week the two best performing girls and boys are presented with a certificate in assembly (staff must mark the commencing of each week to make clear who gains most across a week). Any student who earns three certificates in a term will receive a prize.

Table Points

Table points are awarded to children’s tables within the classroom. Pupils on their particular tables, who behave and work well are given table points throughout the school day. This particular awards system promotes team spirit and encourages the children to support and advise one another. 

Golden Time

Every class in the school on Friday afternoon is given golden time. This is when the children are allowed to play games provided by the school. Golden time is very much valued by the children.

Weekly Headteacher Stickers

Every week after Friday prayer teachers inform the headteacher which pupils in their classes deserve a special gold award sticker for effort and achievement in work and behaviour this week. A select few who have demonstrated the most effort in all areas and at prayer times, are given a special Headteacher’s Award sticker. This happens in front of all classes present (KS2 and Year Two in the summer term when they start joining school congregational prayers). 

Weekly Certificates- Star of the Week

Each week certificates are awarded based on the star charts (see above). On Monday mornings, these children receive a certificate from the headteacher who also explains their achievement to the whole assembly.

Sanctions

A range of sanctions are employed by the school. Appendix A to the policy document demonstrates how they are progressive in nature. The objective of sanctions is to punish a child’s misdemeanour by positive sanctions in order to demarcate the boundaries for acceptable behaviour and to stop the recurrence of particular repetitive misbehaviours. When giving a sanction, teachers ensure it is made clear why the sanction is being given and also state the behaviour that should have been displayed instead. Teachers aim to deal with behaviour management and the giving of sanctions in a positive and personal manner that seeks to understand the pupil and does not harm the pupil’s self-esteem whilst positive alternatives to negative behaviours are stressed.
