“The Six Strands” Behaviour Programme
At Marlborough Infant School we use “The Six Strands” behaviour programme across the school to support behaviour for learning and play.
What is “The Six Strands” ?
- A framework for addressing behaviour for learning
- A programme that uses positive language to support the development of behaviour expectations
- A programme that gives useful strategies to target learning behaviours specifically and positively
- A behaviour programme that links with our School Values – Friendship, Excellence and Respect, The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the School and Class Charters
- Devised by Sarah Cobb and book compiled by Mark Randell from Primary Behaviour Support
What are the strands ?
The approach identifies Six Key Behaviour for Learning Strands
What have we done so far?
- Trained all staff in “The Six Strands Behaviour Programme”
- Held a launch assembly with all the children and staff
- Held a launch, for all parents, by Sarah Cobb the Primary Behaviour Service District Manager and Mrs Court
- Each class is identifying a weekly target for their class to focus on from one of the strands
- Developed a whole class display with targets that we are working on and have achieved
- Used the targets with focus children for daily support and reminders of behaviour expectations
- Led workshops on the strand “Respect” with Sarah Cobb and each child can earn the class respect badge. The child in each class that has earnt the badge the most times will receive a further reward at the end of term.
What else will we be doing?
