Behaviour at NJA
Good behaviour has always been expected at Normanton Junior Academy. We are always striving to improve behaviour throughout school, and we follow a positive behaviour system to do encourage exemplary conduct from our pupils. We also have a wide range of activities provision available for pupils to enjoy at playtimes and dinnertimes.
Children learn from making mistakes. If as adults we are unable to put their mistakes into perspective and struggle to accept their consequences, this gives children the wrong message and does not allow them to learn from them. It is not what a child does, but how the adults around them deal with it that affects how they learn from mistakes and ensure they do not repeat them.
Each half term, every child is given an invitation to the Always Green event that takes place in the last week of the half term. If a child is moved to Amber or Red before the event takes place, then their invitation is revoked, as they have not shown Green behaviour at all times. Every half term, there will be a number of children who do not participate in the Always Green event. Isolated incidents that lead to a child missing the Always Green event are not a cause for concern, they are simply an indication that a child has many an error in judgment. Regular problems are a cause for concern and are addressed as outlined above.
