Positive Behaviour Management

At Hillcroft we believe that positive behaviour management:

  • Is value led
  • Sets high expectations
  • Establishes and maintains clear boundaries
  • Rewards positive behaviour
  • Uses reasonable consequences and restorative justice

Our Values

Our aim is to be proactive rather than reactive - to foster a positive environment where children exhibit a sense of commitment and pride in the school, promote excellent home/school partnerships with parents thereby encouraging effective two-way partnerships and genuinely celebrate the success of others. We aim to help children develop the following core strengths through our STRONG values.


Self-Control (Self Regulation)


Tolerance - developing an understanding and acceptance of differences (Tolerance)


Respect - finding value in difference, appreciating worth in ourselves and others (Respect)


Others (Awareness of others) - being aware of others, recognising their needs, interests, strengths and values  (Attunement)


No one left out - joining in and contributing (Affiliation)


Growing friendships - growing, forming and keeping healthy emotional bonds and relationships (Attachment)


 p We praise and reward children for good behaviour in a variety of ways:

  • Teachers congratulate children through written and verbal feedback.
  • Teachers give children a variety of agreed in class rewards e.g. stickers, house points.
  • Every Friday a child from each class is chosen to receive an Exemplary Learner’s certificate linked to their learning across the curriculum.
  • An Exemplary Behaviour certificate is awarded to one child per class every Monday, linked to our STRONG values. Children are rewarded with a wristband in assembly to wear related to the value they have been awarded their certificate.
  • Those children that are consistently on green (or gold) for a whole term are rewarded with a certificate and a behaviour star badge (1 term on green/gold = green star, 2 terms on green/gold = silver star, 3 terms on green/gold = gold star).

Children who have consistently demonstrated Exemplary Gold level behaviour (linked to the STRONG values) throughout the term are put into a draw to attend High Tea with the SLT to celebrate their achievement.

A full copy of our Behaviour policy can be seen below.
