Behaviour Management

Restorative Approaches


Every Monday morning, in every class, every child and adult participates in a Restorative circle time session.


A whole school Restorative Approach is developing the way that pupils make choices about how and what they learn. It helps to ensure that all pupils, including those from different groups, are involved in making decisions about their life in school. Restorative Approaches promotes respect, care and concern for others and is supporting the continuing development of the emotional skills of pupils, including their self-confidence and self-esteem.

Behaviour Management Scheme



How do we promote good behaviour? Children are given clear guidelines of the appropriate behaviour and expectations in all areas based on our ‘Our School Behaviour Code’, which all staff expect the pupils to abide by. The policy is applied equally before school activities, playtimes, lunchtimes, lesson times, school trips and clubs that happen after school.


The ‘Good to be Green scheme, is used in Progression Step 3 (Y4, Y5 & Y6) as an effective way of promoting positive behaviour, rewarding those pupils who consistently behave appropriately, and is a means of being able to track those pupils who find it harder to meet the school’s expected behaviour code. The scheme is very visual, with child friendly resources which allow our pupils to easily see how they are doing in class. We believe that it is important to promote a positive message regarding behaviour management at all times- ‘Good to be Green’ is a means of promoting our high expectations of positive behaviour. If a child has had a bad lesson, they can start afresh the following lesson.

The ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour scheme is anonymised so people coming into the class do not know which child is not on green.

How it works…


  • The Good to be Green chart displays has a pocket containing a green, amber and red card for every child
  • Children are encouraged to ‘stay on green’ through the visual aid
  • In each class, the expected code of conduct (the school’s agreed rules) are displayed.
  • Children have the chance to start afresh on a ‘green card’ every session/lesson and are expected to maintain that status throughout the day.
  • If a child chooses not to adhere to the agreed rules they move onto a yellow card – correcting their behaviour means they can move back to green without further consequence – this acts as their warning.
  • If a child ignores the warning opportunity, and continues to make bad choices through inappropriate behaviour, they are moved to a red card. A red card will be discussed with parents.
