Our school rules are at the heart of learning and play at Westwood. If children are unable to follow the school rules they are given a chance to reflect upon their behaviour so that they are able to recognise the difference between right and wrong.
Each class has a traffic light system for behaviour. If a child breaks a school rule their name is moved to either amber or red depending on the severity of their actions. After this children can they make their way back to green for making good choices and for reflecting on their behaviour.
Each class also create their own individual class rules during transition periods. The classroom rules always guide the children to make good choices and helps them to recognise the difference between what is right and what is wrong.
The Westwood Way is a self-reflection tool designed for KS2.
The children reflect upon their behaviour choices and empathise with others to seek to resolve any problems.
In doing so the children are learning which behaviours and feelings are right and which are perhaps wrong.
