At Goldsmith, our ethos is to notice good behaviour and give attention to children making the right choices. We use a positive reward system, which recognises good behaviour and encourages our pupils to take responsibility for improving their own behaviour. We also believe in giving appropriate sanctions which are proportionate to pupils’ misdemeanors.
We manage behaviour positively using the ‘Good to be Green’ system, recognising ‘Green’ behaviours and rewarding appropriately. Children begin the day on a white card and staff spot positive behaviours enabling pupils to move to green quickly. Pupils demonstrating exceptional learning and social behaviours all day, will be rewarded with a gold card. Each class will have one gold card winner, each day.
We have high expectations of all of our pupils’ behaviour. The format in which the behaviour system is presented to pupils may differ according to pupil’s needs to allow access for all. The SENCO works in unison with the Pastoral Team to ensure pupils access support.
