Behaviour Management Policy (Primary)

REVIEW DATE: Autumn 2024

  1. Introduction

The school policy for behaviour management was developed and agreed by the Primary School staff. Our collective aim is to enable all children in school to reach their educational potential and it is vital that we maintain acceptable standards of behaviour in the classroom and around the school in order to achieve this. The implementation of this policy is the responsibility of all of the staff within the school community.

  1. Behaviour at Trinity – Principles

“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching,

for showing people what is wrong in their lives,

for correcting faults, and for teaching how to live right.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17(NCV)

The principles which shape the behaviour of pupils within a Christian school must convey truth about God and the ways in which he wants individuals to behave personally and in community. They should reflect that God has all authority, is righteous, just, merciful, gracious, loving and slow to become angry. These principles recognise that every child is a gift from God.

The principles include:

  • Establishing an understanding of God’s nature;
  • Developing a child’s conscience and ability to discern right from wrong in order to make wise choices;
  • Encouraging a respect for authority;
  • Nurturing self-discipline and self-control in each child;
  • Teaching each child how to form and maintain godly relationships;
  • Teaching godly principles of responsible community living;
  • Creating the conditions for an orderly community in which effective learning can take place;
  • Establishing and maintaining a consistent and fair approach to the management of the behaviour of pupils throughout the school.

The above principles will lead to Trinity having a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere where pupils are able to give their best in the classroom. Pupils will be encouraged and stimulated to fulfil their potential. In order to achieve this, a positive policy of encouraging appropriate attitudes through praise and rewards is necessary.

  1. Good Behaviour 

At Trinity Christian School we expect pupils:

  • to be polite;
  • to be respectful;
  • to be sensitive to the needs of others and to their property;
  • not to take the law into their own hands;
  • to respect and follow the school rules.
  1. Rewards for good behaviour 

“Let your good deeds shine out for all to see,

so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”

Matthew 5:16 (NLT)

We will use a system of stars to encourage good behaviour and work. ‘Star of the Week’ certificates will be presented in the weekly Primary School assembly. These stars will equal credits in the whole school house system. The house with the most credits is presented with a trophy at the whole school assembly at the end of each term.

Teachers might also reward good behaviour with stickers and certificates.

  1. School Rules 

Jesus taught that all rules can be summed up by these two commandments.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.”

“Love your neighbour as you love yourself.”

See Matthew 22:37-40 (NCV)

To help us follow the above commandments, these guidelines have been written.

These guidelines will help Trinity Christian School to be an enjoyable, safe environment.

  • We speak to each other and treat each other with respect.
  • We respect all adults in our school.
  • We are quick to listen and to obey instructions.
  • We take care to be friendly and helpful to visitors.
  • We always walk in school.
  • We do not distract our friends during work or worship.
  • We are always truthful.
  • We aim to sort out any problems quickly.
  1. Traffic Light System

“Each one will be rewarded

for their own work.”

1 Corinthians 3v8 (NCV)

In order to give the children a visual representation of their progress in following the school rules, we have developed a traffic light system to encourage the children to do what is right. We encourage the children to ‘Go God’s Way, Go Green’ and to ‘Do what is right and be rewarded.’

Green – Children who stay on green throughout the day are rewarded with a star at the end of each day.

Amber – Children are advised that if undesirable behaviour continues, then their name will be moved to amber. Teachers will then look to see that the child corrects their behaviour at which point their name can be returned to green.

Red – If being in amber does not correct behaviour, then their name will be moved to red. At this point the child would be taken to another class for the remainder of this lesson. 

  1. Continued disruptive behaviour – pupil’s parent(s)/guardian(s) will be informed through a meeting after school or by telephone.
  1. Subsequent offences – pupil will be referred to the Headteacher or SMT. They will arrange a meeting with the pupil’s parent(s)/guardian(s). The Headteacher will decide whether the pupil’s participation in any school visits or events should be withdrawn.

The school also operates the Academic Support Policy and reserves the right to implement the School Exclusion Policy
