The Short Wood Behaviour Charter
At Short Wood, the Good to be Green scheme underpins our approach to both teaching our behaviour curriculum, and to scaffolding how we support children who are making inappropriate behaviour choices.
Every child starts each day on a positive note with a green card. If a child is behaving in a manner that is not aligned with our core Short Woody values, they first receive a stop and think card. At this point, the adult will explain the inappropriate behaviour and highlight the desired behaviour, giving the opportunity for the child to reflect on their behaviour and to make the right choices. If inappropriate behaviour continues, the child will progress to a yellow warning card, followed by up to 5 red consequence cards. Each stage will be considered as a teaching point, and the adult will help the child to understand not only why their behaviour does not reflect the Short Wood values, but also the changes that are needed.
Our approach to behaviour management is consistent right across school, from Nursery to Year 6, with due regard to the age and stage of the children. It is used in all locations around school, regardless of whether children are in the classroom, on the playground, at Forest School, or at clubs: we have consistently high expectations of behaviour, for all children, at all times.
Following the issuing of a stop and think card and a warning card, our Good to be Green Behaviour Charter takes children through a series of consequences.
All behaviour incidents will be recorded and data analysed on a weekly basis in order to allow us to review and monitor behaviour across school and to put in additional interventions and support where necessary.
It is our intention that all behaviour incidents will be concluded with a restorative conversation between all parties, with the opportunity to put things right, and with a fresh start moving forward.
