St Brigid’s Behaviour Policy 2017-2018
At St Brigid’s we value each person as a unique individual created by God. It is our aim that everybody reaches their true potential and therefore have very high expectations of behaviour. Our behaviour policy is written in the light of the gospel and our school mission statement. (full behaviour policy pdf available at the end of this page)
We promote 4 rights to support everyone to be the best we can be as we ‘Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it.’:
Everyone has the right to feel safe
Everyone has the right to respect and dignity
Everyone has the right to learn
Every adult has the right to do their job.
These rights are promoted in every classroom by:
Being promoted by each class’s ‘Class Charter’ which is written and agreed by the class team
The Classroom Charter written by the children with the help of their teacher at the start of the year is based on the following expectations:
Wear the uniform with pride
Be ready and willing to learn
Sit and listen
Follow instructions first time
Take care of things
Use kind words
Have gentle hands and feet
All rights and responsibilities are covered and promoted by their class charter.
It is the children’s decision to respond to their rights and responsibility and to display their responses in their classrooms.
Appendix 1: The School Behaviour System
We ensure that it is delivered in an age appropriate way.
Positive behaviour has positive consequences which is celebrated in a variety of ways:
Going for Gold!
A green sticker for every day within a half term = Gold badge, photograph and reward activity
6/6 terms of gold = annual celebration activity
Negative behaviour also has negative consequences
We have a fresh start everyday policy- all children back on green unless behaviour warrants longer consequences as outline on the chart in the full behaviour policy
When children struggle with their behaviour, we are committed to working with both the child and the parents in a variety of ways and this has been very successful to date. Every child is different and unique and we continue to find new ways to support different children in different situations.
