Whole School Behaviour Scheme


In February 2019 we re-launched our behaviour scheme along with the introduction of new cards for the children to earn.  This is a whole school initiative which will be used in every class.  Every child has a green card; this is where every child starts at the beginning of each day.
















There are many children within our school who consistently behave well; with this in mind we are introducing two new cards.  Good to be Gold – this card will be awarded to children who consistently behave well and persistently work hard to achieve the best they can.


We also have a privilege card – this card will be awarded to children who achieve Good to be Gold multiple times within the week.  We have had a school council meeting and discussed the privileges the children could receive for their hard work.  They decided, children on a privilege card within the week would:

• Be able to play on the apparatus on a Monday (both playtimes)

• Receive a homework pass (should they wish)

• Have squash with their school lunch on a Monday

• Have a non-school shoe day (date to be decided)
