Behaviour for learning
We aim to promote a positive approach to behaviour where children are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves wherever possible, so that they can become independent, thoughtful and responsible. We reward and celebrate positive behaviour as we believe that this will motivate children to aim high in their achievements and develop an ethos of kindness and cooperation. We recognise each child as a unique individual and focus on nurturing and supporting them, through emotional literacy and understanding and creating a positive classroom culture.
Behaviour is communication therefore it is essential we communicate with the children and encourage them to reflect. We achieve this using our Barlavento Colour Pathway framework which uses mindfulness to support the children to reflect on their choices, communicate, express and regulate their emotions and cultivate resilience.
