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 considerate and respectful way towards others. We treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way.

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

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 

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 (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
  • 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)
  • Any child getting a star of the week, wow or VIP certificate gets a point on a Friday (Shining Stars children get 2 points)
  • At the end of each half-term the top 6 children in each class get additional playtime
  • At the end of the term the top points children will get a ‘party’ & ‘fun-time’
  • At the end of the year the top points children will get a bigger reward e.g. trip out
