The approach to recognising and rewarding good behaviour at Heath Fields Primary School

The approach to managing behaviour at Heath Fields Primary School
When a child displays behaviour that is not in line with the schools expectation (refer to school and class rules) then the following steps to be followed.
Step one – A verbal warning is given to the child.
Step two – Childs name is put into the class behaviour book and instant loss of 5 minutes break.
Step three – x put against child’s name indicating loss of break or 15 minutes of lunch break.
Step four – Child is sent to work in another class, via M.Whyman or senior member of staff. A yellow card is sent home informing parents and is accompanied by a text message.
If incidents happen during the afternoon, then the sanction is carried over to the next day. Children will be given the opportunity, during the afternoon to meet the teacher’s expectations and so have any sanctions removed for the following day.
If a midday supervisor reports that a child has not behaved in the expected way at lunch time, then normal sanctions are followed resulting, in the first instance, 5 minutes loss of lunch time the following day, which cannot be earnt back.
