At Seven Stars Primary School we believe that every member of the school community should be valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school’s behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment in which everyone feels happy, safe and secure.

The school has a number of rules, but our behaviour policy is not primarily concerned with rule enforcement. It is a means of promoting good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the school community in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and considerate way.

The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a respectful way towards others. We treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way bearing in mind the different needs and skills of each child.

This policy aims to help children grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.

The school recognises and promotes good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and cooperation. This policy is designed to encourage good behaviour, rather than merely deter anti-social behaviour.

We are pro-active in supporting children with their behaviour and social skills and have recently introduced a new lunchtime project called OPAL that better helps children to learn social skills, build team work and become more fully engaged with activities outdoors that promote well-being, increased physical activity and strong relationships.

Where a child is struggling with their behaviour then we work with parents and other professionals to explore ways in which we can help those children to engage and make a more positive contribution to the communities they are a part of.

Click on the documents below to see our 'Positive Planets' behaviour strategies and systems so you can see how we intend to pursue these aims:





  • Every child is on earth when they come in each day and therefore autmatically get 1 point for attending (if they are not in they move off earth and their names are at one side – this means they get a point for every day they attend which will motivate attendance and we can see, for health & safety/fire drill purposes, who is not in immediately)
  • Children who display excellent EFFORT in behaviour and work FOR THEM (not in comparison to others) move up a point at the discretion of the class teacher (the teacher might move up a whole table, most of the class, just one child) – teachers use their discretion & professional judgement
  • Children will NOT move down once they have earned the point (so those who achieved a point in the morning but had a bad afternoon will not lose their morning points)
  • The top planet should be the highest possible effort and will be exceptional (we do not go to double, double etc!)
  • At the end of the day points are recorded and the sheet will be collected at the end of the week so SLT can monitor behaviour and rewwards given for most points
  • This is ONLY for class-based behaviour management and not to be used for playtimes or behaviour anywhere else in school (so teacher is making the decisions)
  • Our Positive Planets points system can also be used for rewarding specific behaviour
  • The class is also able to have a 'class rocket' which moves up the planets when the whole class show great effort as a team (the whole class are then rewarded when it gets to the top planet - usually after several days)
  • The visibility of the chart means that other teachers and Leaders in the school can see who is putting in great effort that day in each class and praise them
