Good To Be Green

As a result of parental feedback we gained last year, we updated some of the systems we use for behaviour at school.

We want to get as many pupils as possible to our Green Party at the end of each term. Children can achieve this by following the rules we have in school and earning their stickers each week.

 

  • End of term Green Party – Children who have received all of their stickers (or have less than three gaps on their sticker chart)

In the past 12 months, the numbers of pupils attending these have increased term on term and we have lots of fun! Green Party events have included a pizza party, pyjama party and we even had a visit from the ice-cream van in the Summer!

 

  • End of year Green Party – This is to celebrate the achievement of those children who have earnt every single one of their stickers from September to July. Last year, we took the children Bodenham Arboretum for the end of year green party

As part of our British Values our children vote on what they want the Green Party to be. School Councillors meet with Mrs C Price and create a short list which then classes vote on.

We want all of our children to succeed and we hope that with this behaviour system, we can ensure all children feel safe and valued at our school.  

 

We have a three stage behaviour management system in school: The system is progressive so you would start on a verbal warning and then progress to yellow then to a red. Red cards can be given for behaviours that we deem to be unacceptable at school without going through the system.

 

Stage 1 : Verbal Warning

Stage 2 : Yellow card ( Turn card over in class display)

Stage 3 : Red card (  Missed playtime or 15 minutes from lunchtime)

 

Verbal warnings are given for the behaviours to ensure the child knows they are making the wrong choice in terms of their behaviour. 

 

Yellow card behaviours: After the first card issued it would rule a child out of the End of year Green Party as they would need to be GREEN all year. 

 

After talking to our children and staff we have created a list of behaviours that we feel would warrant a yellow card. These may include: 

  • Talking when an adult is.
  • Not following instructions.
  • Shouting across a classroom
  • Being disrespectful.
  • Snatching
 

For a child receiving 2 yellow cards in a week this would mean that they would not receive their Good to be Green sticker chart in class. 

 

Red card behaviours: After a red card has been issued it would mean that they would not be able to attend the end of year Green party as they need to of been GREEN all year.                                                                           

 

  • A second yellow card behaviour (as listed previously within the same lesson)
  • Spitting
  • Swearing
  • Throwing equipment across a classroom
  • Threatening behaviour

 

If children receive 2 yellow cards/a red card they will lose their sticker on their behaviour chart.
If children receive 4 yellow cards or 1 red card over the term they will not be able to attend the end of term Green Party.

 

Orange Form

If behaviour turns physical then children will be issued with an Orange form, which is then dealt with by a member of the leadership team. This will result in the immediate loss of their invite to the Green Party.

Blue Form

If behaviour is verbally inappropriate then children will be issued with a Blue form, which is then dealt with by a member of the leadership team. This will result in the immediate loss of their invite to the Green Party.
