How we behave in school… At Meare we want: to be able to learn, to be safe and to be happy We are encouraged to be aware not only of our own needs but also those of others. We should to develop values of: respect tolerance self-control and a sense of responsibility. What happens when we forget to follow our rules? Adult will speak to us and use a Restorative Thinking card. Adult will speak to us again and our name will be placed in lunchtime book or on board. If an adult has to speak to us again, they will tick our name and we will lose play, or next privilege. Our name will be recorded in the class behaviour book. We might be asked to complete a Restorative Thinking Sheet. What is a Restorative Thinking Card? What are you doing? What is the rule about that? How is it affecting others? What is the best choice you can make now? How can you show that you accept responsibility This encourages us to: Have respect Take responsibility Make reparation (put things right) And re-integrate (carrying on learning, playing and getting on with our friends) We can remember these as our ‘4 Rs’ What happens next? If we continue to break our rules then we will lose play or privilege time and be asked to speak to our teacher, Mrs Bradley or Mrs Vincent. Finally Mrs Eveleigh will speak to us and call our parents. No one is bad in our school Sometimes our behaviour is not acceptable and we hurt or upset people. This can be because we are hurt or upset ourselves and it is important that we speak to an adult about this. Adults will always listen. We can speak to: Our class teacher or teaching assistant A play leader Our Key person Make a poster to show how we think about our behaviour when we have made wrong choices. You could use the 4 Rs to help you And… the questions on our Restorative Thinking Card.
