Welfare and Discipline
Teachers recognise and reward positive behaviour. Children are asked to “put a marble in the jar.” When classrooms have 100 marbles in the jar, a class reward is negotiated. Inappropriate behaviour takes learning time from all students. Children who disrupt have their name written on the board. If there is another incident, a tick is put by their name. Time out – for one hour – in another classroom is the next consequence. Inappropriate Playground is recorded in the “Red Books”. Examples of inappropriate behaviour are: bullying (physical, verbal, emotional), out of bounds and rough play. Children who use the playground appropriately are rewarded. Excellence awards are given to students at the end of each month if they have exceptional yard & class behaviour.
