Good To Be Green
We want to get as many pupils as possible to participate in our Good to be Green celebration at the end of each term. Children can achieve this by following the rule we have in school and earning their stickers each week.
- End of term Good to be Green celebration– Children who have remained green all term.
In the past 12 months, the numbers of pupils attending these have increased term on term and we have lots of fun! Good to be Green events have included cinema experience, team building, whole school creative stations, a magician’s show and lots more!
- End of year Good to Green celebration– This is to celebrate the achievement of those children who have remained green all year.
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.

Behaviour Management System
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 red. In the event of more serious behaviour an orange can be issued for behaviours that we deem to be unacceptable at school without going through the system.
Stage 1 : Yellow: Verbal Warning (Consequence: name moved to yellow class display= continue to learn within the lesson)
After talking to our children and staff we have created a list of behaviours that we feel would warrant a verbal warning*. These may include:
- Talking when an adult is
- Not following instructions
- Shouting across a classroom
- Being disrespectful
Verbal warnings are given for behaviours to ensure the child knows they are making the wrong choice in terms of their behaviour to ensure that they can make the choice to improve their behaviour. *This is not an exhaustive list
Stage 2 : Amber (Consequence: name moved to amber on class display= continue to learn within the lesson and miss 30 minutes of lunchtime to complete reflection time sheet)
Children’s names are moved to amber, when they continue to disrupt learning in the same lesson following a verbal warning.
Stage 3 : Red (Name moved to red on class display= 5 minutes time out during the lesson and missed 30 minutes of lunchtime to complete reflection time and a purple form sent home to inform parents)
Children’s names are moved to red, when they continue to disrupt learning following an amber warning. The children will be asked to take time out so that they are removed from the situation and reflect on their actions.
If children receives amber or red they will lose their sticker on the weekly behaviour chart showing that they have not remained on green during the week. If children receives 3 purple forms in a term, therefore losing three weeks of stickers, they will not be eligible to attend the Good to Green celebration.
If behaviour turns physical or verbally threatening or abusive then children will be issued with an Orange form, which is then dealt with by a member of the leadership team. They automatically lose their invite to the Good to be Green celebration. Parents will be invited into school to speak with the class teacher or a member of the senior leadership team.
