At The Coombes we recognise that each child has individual behavioural needs, therefore rewards and support are always the first option of the school to ensure that the child can make positive choices. However, if a child's behaviour interferes with the learning of others then consequences will be used.
Consequences for Inappropriate Behaviour
If a child chooses to behave in a way that does not follow the guiding principles their name will be moved from green to amber. This acts as a warning and gives the child the opportunity to make positive behaviour choices. If the inappropriate behaviour continues the name will be moved onto red and finally the storm cloud which is below this. At this point the child's name will be recorded, and their behaviour will be monitored. As a consequence, they will lose some of their play time.
At this point, if the inappropriate behaviour continues, the child will be moved through a series of steps culminating with a meeting with parent or carer and the Head Teacher. Members of the Inclusion Team will also be present to discuss the support required to ensure that the child makes the right choices in the future.
"unwanted negative behaviour, verbal, psychological or physical conducted by an individual or group against another person (or persons) and which is repeated over time"
The school will follow a 'zero tolerance' approach to bullying.
