Behaviour (Good to be Green)


Positive Behaviour at Blue Coat Infants


The Governing body, staff and pupils seek to ensure that our schools are safe and caring learning environments where all children are supported to develop and maintain healthy relationships with peers and adults and to learn to take personal responsibility for behaviour.

Both schools work collaboratively with parents, to ensure children receive consistent messages about behaviour expectations at home and at school. We explain the school rules in the schools’ prospectuses and parents read these and support them. 


We like to keep our school rules simple:

Be kind.

Be Safe.

Be ready to learn.




The schools use the ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour management scheme to ensure a consistent, positive approach throughout the Federation. 




It’s Good to be Green!
