What are the Golden Rules?
Why do we have Golden Time?
The school works hard to help pupils manage their behaviour independently. Pupils are encouraged to keep the Golden Rules and are rewarded with Golden Time. The school also investigates what the Golden Rules look like through Circle Times and assemblies.
We have very good behaviour in the school and pupils respond well the the Circle Time model.
How does Golden Time work?
1. At the beginning of the week every child is awarded 30 minutes of Golden Time. This is a time when they choose an activity that they like to do.
2. A warning card is given to anyone who breaks a rule for the first time.
3. Children are taught that behaviour is a choice. If they choose to behave badly and break the rules, the consequence is less Golden Time.
- If a child loses all his/her Golden Time, he/she may buy back half, if agreed with the teacher.
- Loss of Golden Time equals a time for reflection. He/she watches a sand timer for the length of time lost. Meanwhile others around are enjoying the time he/she has lost.
6. Children who always obey the Golden Rules and do not lose Golden Time are given a good news certificate to take home at the end of term. If Golden Time is lost on two occasions within a short period of time then parent are informed.
