Our Golden Rules, Our Values & Golden Time

Cherry Tree School has a positive behaviour policy.

The children at our school are very well behaved the majority of the time. We feel we are providing clear guidelines and boundaries to support each child in making the right decisions when choosing how they behave. Our Golden Rules represent our expected code of behaviour and as displayed around school for the children to see at all times.

Our Golden Rules

We are gentle
We are kind and helpful
We listen
We are honest
We work hard
We look after property
We don’t hurt others
We don’t hurt others feelings
We don’t interrupt
We always tell the truth
We don’t waste our own and others time
We don’t waste or damage things

Golden Time
Golden Time takes place on Friday mornings. This is a special session where all the children who have kept the Golden Rules all week choose an exciting activity to participate in, and we all celebrate together. I am sure your child will update you about the new activities that we offer. 

Children who break any of the rules are given a visual warning that is displayed in their classroom. If they continue to choose to break the rule they lose 5 minutes of Golden Time (only 1 minute in early years and early Key Stage 1). We discuss with the children what happens regularly so that they fully understand how Golden Time works, and we support the children in trying to follow the rules so that losing Golden Time is not a common event.
