Behaviour Scheme
Our behaviour scheme is based on a Zone Board. Every child starts on the green zone every day. Good behaviour and if their work ethic is good, they go up the zones on the board, highest being gold. Bad behaviour they will go down the zone board, lowest being red. At the end of the day, all children on the gold zone receive a raffle ticket that is entered into the end of week class raffle. At the end of term all weekly winners are entered from each class into a big end of term raffle.
