Awards and Rewards


Our behaviour system is based on the traffic light system and we call it Good to be Green! Around the academy chidlren are expected to behave in a 'Green' manor. For example, in the corridors, green behaviour is walking sensibly. In the classroom, green behaviour is working hard, listening to others and following instructions. Good to be Green is for everybody, from our youngest Foundation Stage pupils to our oldest Y6!

Inside the classrooms are traffic lights. If a pupil's behaviour is not green, their name is placed in amber, or even red. The teacher will always say to that pupil "To be green you need to...." 

Every adult in every classroom uses Good to be Green. There is consistency right across the academy so all pupils know what green behaviour looks like.

Children can earn themselves Green Points as rewards for being Green around school, trying their best with their work, being poilte etc. These can then be spent at the points shop which is run by the Year 6 children.
