(Steps to be determined by classroom teachers for their own class)
(Whole School Behaviour Management starts from Step 4)
How long -> 15 minutes
What to do -> no work
Where -> front of class–facing forward
For serious aggressive behaviours and/or intentional swearing at staff the child will be placed immediately on Step 5
Sport on Friday will not be used as a consequence for misbehaviour in the classroom or playground. However, indiscretions during sport will result in time-out at sport. Continued misbehaviour at sport will result in the student being excluded from sport the following week.
*In exceptional circumstances teachers, after consultation with specialist staff as well as members of the school administration, may implement specific, short term measures that will positively change the behaviour of their students.
Suggestions: Class handed over to specialist teachers with a laminated class list showing the steps illustrated in columns so specialist teachers can use with consistency the same system.
Time-outs will be served at each lunch break, (Mon to Thurs). Due to sport on Friday, time-outs will be served on Monday in the same area.
The COOL-OFF SEAT is to be used as an intermediate step to allow children to compose themselves and return to playing with greater self control.
Procedure: Upon displaying inappropriate behaviours, children will be immediately placed on time-out for 10 minutes. COOL OFF SEAT. If it is a SEVERE CLAUSE child is to be given a TIME OUT slip.
