The Coombe Hill Junior School Behaviour Regulation Policy is based on the following principles:
We have been sharing this image with our pupils and helping them to understand that ‘Fairness does not mean everyone gets the same. Fairness means everyone gets what they need.’ Everyone has different starting points and will need different types and levels of support to be successful.
We have also focussed on the importance of praising publically and criticising quietly. Where children make unexpected behaviour chocies they are encourgaed to have a discussion with an adult to talk about their feelings, their actions and how to make things better.
We use the Zones of Regulation and emotion coaching to guide pupils through any unexpected behaviour choices that they have made. We teach our pupils that all emotions are ok, we all move from one to another throughout each day. Our behaviour choices are the things we can control and we teach pupils strategies to support them with this. More can be found out about Zones of Regulation on our PSHE curriculum page. We use the reflection sheets below to guide our pupils to reflect on their actions and to identify how they can correct their mistakes and make the right choice next time.
