It is imperative to all of us in the school community at Stockbridge to ensure that every child is able to learn because their behaviour and that of others is exemplary. Our 6 values underpin this and equip our children with the skills to learn how to behave.
To ensure that a clear and consistent message is given to all of our school community, we have agreed a whole school approach to positive behaviour management. For more details on our policy, please see HERE.
Every child in the school is divided into a colour ‘family’. These families eat together at lunchtimes, work together during whole school activities and generally get to know each other very well. Children can earn points and rewards for their family to earn a special reward at the end of each term.
In addition to this, children earn success points when they have done something successfully that is a step forwards in their learning or personal development. These are rewarded in Celebration Assembly on a Friday along with a Superstar Learner of the week from each class.
Of course, where there is praise and reward, there are consequences if children choose to not adhere to the agreed Stockbridge standards and class rules. These consequences are the same across the school and apply when children are working with their class, a volunteer, out on a school visit or on the playground. They are clearly laid out and linked to the rungs of a ladder, with each step up the ladder being a more serious consequence.
Behaviour policy is available to download including a section on bullying and how the school deals with this.
Our behaviour ladder is key to helping children understand a fair and reasonable consequence.
