Behaviour Expectations 

Creating the best conditions for learning: Good Behaviour

'The behaviour of pupils is outstanding.'  (OFSTED 2017) 


'Pupils understand the importance of behaving well and respond excellently to the high expectations of staff.’  (OFSTED 2017)


‘As one pupil said 'We have rules in the school and everyone knows that the rules are there to make sure we are safe. Why would anyone not follow them?''  (OFSTED 2017)


‘The level of respect and care is central to the way that pupils behave and respect each other. Established routines are understood and, no time is wasted in lessons. All pupils want to do well.’  (OFSTED 2017)



Outstanding behaviour is essential at school, to enable children and their peers to learn effectively individually and collaboratively.

We insist on high standards of behaviour so that all children come to school feeling happy, safe and ready to learn. This is achieved by a clear behaviour policy, the explicit teaching or the Globe Way, our behaviour curriculum and consistent expecation of and  re-enforcement of positive behaviour.

We always seek to promote excellent behaviour inside and outside the classroom to enable our children to be responsible and caring individuals.

Our Behaviour Curriculum - The Globe Way

We explicitly teach good behaviour in the same way we teach other areas, through a curriculum.  We call our curriculum 'The Globe Way'. 

The process we follow for teaching behaviour explicitly is: 

2  Communicate in detail your expectations 

3. Practise the routines until everyone can do them 

4. Reinforce, maintain and patrol the routines constantly.

The Globe Way behaviour curriculum content is covered in depth in Autumn Term 1 and revisited throughout the year.

We expect all our pupils to be good Globe Citizens and follow all the Globe Values. To be a Good Globe Citizen you must follow 3 overarching principles of behaviour. They are: 

What does being a Good Globe Citizen mean?

Be Respectful 

Be Responsible 

Be Ready to Learn 

I show good manners. 

This means: 

  •  I say “please "when I would like something.  
  • I say “thank you” when someone gives me something or does something for me. 
  • I say “excuse me” if someone is in my way and I would like to pass.  
  • I hold doors open for others and use the silent “thank you” sign when others hold the door for me. 
  • If I accidentally knock into or hurt someone, I stop and speak with them, asking if they are ok and say sorry.  
  • If someone is hurt, I look after them. 
  • I say, “good morning” and ‘’good afternoon” 
  • If someone speaks to me, I answer them. 

  I am honest. 

This means

  • I always tell the truth. 
  • I tell the truth even if I am worried or scared. 
  • I do not take things that do not belong to me as that is stealing. 


I show that I am ready to learn

This means: 

  • I sit still 
  • I listen carefully to the teacher – good listening 
  • I give the teacher 100% of my attention 
  • I look at the person who is talking to me (eye contact). 
  • I answer when I am spoken to.  
  • If I am not sure of what is being said to me, I say “I do not understand” or “I don’t know the answer.” 
  • I start my work straight away when asked to 
  • I work hard on the tasks given. 


Good Listening means

  • Face forward,  
  • Hands together  
  • Sit up straight  
  • Never interrupt  
  • Track the speaker 


I take responsibility for my own actions

  • This means: 
  • I admit if I have done something wrong. 
  • I do no blame others for what I have done. 
  • If apologise if I have done something wrong. 
  • I am trusted to do things without being supervised. 

 I use a kind tone of voice to others. 

This means: 

  • I speak calmly. 
  • I do not shout at people. 
  • I do not swear. 
  • I smile and am positive  


I take responsibility for my home learning. 

This means: 

  • I complete my home learning tasks on time. 
  • I read at home. 
  • I bring my book bag to school each day. 
  • I make sure my reading journal is completed. 

I ask before taking. 

  • This means I say “Please can I have … or “May I use …. 
  • I do not snatch or grab things from others. 


I look after school property and our school environment. 

This means: 

  • If I see litter, I pick it up and put it in the correct bin. 
  • If a coat or bag is on the ground, I hang it up or put it away. 
  • I put fruit peel in the bin.  
  • I tidy up after I have used something. 
  • I keep my workspace tidy.  
  • I put playground equipment away. 

To foster positive behaviour children are rewarded through Good News certificates, Globe Award Cards, special privileges and having responsibilities within the school community.

Occasionally, a child may not adhere to these values. In order to develop a child’s learning behaviour or their understanding of responsibility to the school community sanctions are given. If a child continues to misbehave repeatedly or if their behaviour is rather more serious, then the Head of School will ask parents to come to school to talk about the inappropriate behaviour and how it can be resolved. Additionally, in some circumstances the school will use outside agencies to support children, families and the school with behaviour issues. Finally, in extreme circumstances children may be excluded for a fixed number of days or permanently.

Ways to support your child’s behaviour in school

Globe Rights Respecting Values

These are the rights which the whole school community have chosen and which we all respect. These underpin our actions and children are praised for respecting these rights and reminded of them when they do not.

Our values are based on articles from the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child. 


Globe Values are for all children and adults in our school.

Adults in our school respect children’s rights and always act in their best interest. (Articles 2 and 3)


We respect that all children have rights and should always be treated fairly. (Article 2)


We respect the right to feel safe in body and mind. (Article 19)


We respect everyone’s right to be heard and listened to. (Article 12)


We respect the right to learn, the right to develop our talents and abilities and to let others enjoy their learning. (Article 23 and 29)


We respect children’s right to play, rest, join in and choose their own friends. (Article 15 and 31)


We respect the right to be in a safe, clean environment. (Article 24 and 29)



 Our Rights Respecting Playground Charter

  • This is our Playground Charter, an agreement between staff and children to make playtimes active, happy, safe and rights respecting. Children voted on which rights from the United Nations Convention of the Child were most relevant within the playground. From this, staff and children all contributed to what actions they needed to take in order that these rights are always respected. This Playground Charter is displayed throughout our playground and in all classrooms so that we can always refer to it.
