Our Behaviour System
At our school, we value good behaviour. If we are well behaved, we learn more. Children who are not behaving well take the teachers away from us and stop us from learning.
If we behave well we are rewarded with Dojo points. If we misbehave, there is a clear system of sanctions.
Our Behaviour Boards
Each member of the class has their name on a magnetic strip. Everybody starts each day on the green section.
If we do something good, or give a really good answer, we could be moved up into the 'wow' zone at the top of the board - we get dojo points for this.
If we do something that is against the school rules, we get a warning and our name is moved closer to the line. If we do something wrong again, we go into the amber zone. At playtime, we go to the office to explain to Mr Brown why we have been behaving badly.
If after this, we still carry on being badly behaved, we go to Mr Brown and he decides if we have moved into the red zone. If we go into the red zone, we lose a full day's playtimes (we sit with the first aider and do work). This is a serious punishment, but we will have done quite a few things wrong and had lots of chances to stop misbehaving. If a person does something really bad, such as swearing or hurting someone. they can go straight into the red zone without any warnings.
Not many people go into the red zone.
We also have certificates given to the highest point scorer in each class.
