All staff follow a consistent and structured framework of discipline sanctions. Children are encouraged to “Stop, Think, Choose” and are reminded that “ We never say or do anything to hurt or upset anyone else”. This is supported by a visual system of coloured cards and smiley faces to encourage children to make appropriate choices:

GREEN: well done…you are on task…good behaviour…good choice…

AMBER: careful…behaviour is not appropriate…last warning before time out is called N.B. if this is achieved, scale back by showing the green card to acknowledge that the child has made an appropriate choice)

RED: unacceptable behaviour – time out (step/chair/spot/ partner classroom. This is not a punishment but a time to reflect and to choose to come back and behave appropriately. This is an expectation. If refuse to do time out or to come back appropriately then they lose a privilege e.g. golden time, free choice, playtime, part of lunch time and a letter telling their parents that they are not co-operating will be sent home.​
