There is a whole school approach to behaviour that ensures clarity and consistency in terms of expectations. To support this we have a developed a ‘Longwell Green Behaviour Target’
The purpose of the target is to recognise and reward those children who live the school values. We call these choices green choices and know that 99% of our children achieve these all the time.
The target shows 3 other sets of choices a child might make a school – an amber choice, a red choice and a purple choice. The target is quite explicit in what constitutes each particular colour choice band. This is to ensure consistency across the school and help children clearly understand what might be the consequences if someone makes a poor choice. Any amber, red or purple choice is recorded in the whole school behaviour log.
Most importantly, we love to celebrate the green choices children make and use class Dojos and Commendation Certificates to reward children who are engaged in their learning, listening and aiming high. All staff also give out courtesy coins to children they notice being friendly, caring and polite. Through our behaviour target, we help children grow into happy and confident individuals who understand the importance of making good choices.
We want our code of behaviour to help us make Longwell Green School a happy and safe place for everyone to work in.
