Good to be Green

Our positive behaviour strategy


Information for parents

At Marriott Primary School we aim to provide a happy atmosphere in which staff and parents work together for the welfare of the children. We expect our children to behave well and take responsibility for their actions. We recognise that parents / carers should be fully informed about their child’s behaviour and every effort is made to ensure that there is good communication between home and school.

It’s good to be green

In each class there is a Good to be Green wall chart. Every child has a green card, showing that they are “Good to be Green”. At the start of everyday, every child will be green. During the day, children who follow our school rules stay on a green card. However, children who make the wrong choices will be given a yellow Warning card. If they continue to make wrong choices they will be given a red Consequence card. However, they may choose to make the right choices and go back to green. At the end of the day any child who is still on green gets 5 minutes towards Golden Time on Friday.

Golden time

Golden Time is a reward for those children who respect our school rules.

Golden Time takes place during the last half hour on a Friday afternoon and gives each class an opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities together.

Children who have received Warning cards during the week will miss some minutes of their Golden Time within their classroom.

If you have any questions regarding any of this information, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.

Thank you for your continuing support.
