St Brigid’s Promoting Positive Behaviour Policy

Promoting Positive Behaviour

Children’s Rights as outlined in the UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child) are fundamental to a good school ethos.  Adults in our school will work with children to ensure they are aware of their rights and fully respect the rights of others.  Therefore, the approach within St Brigid’s is to build a positive ethos that demonstrates care and respect for all.  Positive behaviour is recognised and celebrated.  Our school operates a system of Golden Rules to set out expected behaviour.  This is celebrated through Golden Time Rewards, awards at assemblies and certificates, class of the week and month. 

In St Brigid’s we have the following set of Golden Rules that were created in conjunction with pupils and staff.

Golden Rules

We are Gentle

We are Kind and Helpful

We are honest

We Work Hard

We Look after your things and others

We Listen


Golden Rules should be displayed in every classroom and will be displayed in the hall and corridors.  These should be referred to daily and will be reinforced during assemblies to highlight ways in which these could be achieved.


Golden Time- Rewards for an individual’s hard work.

On a Friday afternoon, teachers will complete Circle Time with their class before Golden Time, to reflect upon the Golden Rules and discuss positive steps forward for those Golden Rules that have been broken.  Directly following this, children will take part in Golden Time activities as a reward for meeting the Golden Rules.
