Golden Time/ Vocational Enrichment

Promoting Positive Behaviour- Do the right thing!

We expect all pupils to behave well and to ‘Do the right thing!’ We have a set of school rules that should be taught and followed with the emphasis on ‘catching’ and celebrating positive behaviour.

If pupils have ‘done the right thing’ all week then they are awarded with 45mins at a club of their choice- Vocational enrichment- on a Friday pm each week.

The club choices change half termly and there is a wide range to choose from including, Arts and Crafts, Sports’, Singing, Technology, Gardening etc Both the teachers and TAs run the clubs as well as some of the Year 6 pupils which helps towards their verits

We follow the Golden Time system devised by Jenny Moseley. Each pupil starts the week with 45 minutes of special time to be spent during Friday afternoon enjoying self-chosen activities at a Golden Time Club. Pupils who keep The Vine School Rules are rewarded with their full 45 minutes, pupils who lose Golden Time have to ‘pay back’ this time before they join in with the Golden Time activities. Pupils who lose up to 20minutes ‘pay back’ their time within their classroom, those that lose more than 20 minutes ‘pay back’ their time in the Rainbow Room with the Inclusion Manager, where they will both discuss their behaviour and write lines. If pupils lose more than 20minutes 3 times in a half term, they will be given a ‘Going for Green’ chart.

Pupils are taught that behaviour is a choice and that they are responsible for their own actions. If they choose to behave well, they are rewarded but if they choose to behave inappropriately then a consequence follows.
