St Michael's
C.E. Primary School

Believe, Achieve, Succeed


At St Michaels we develop children’s character and Christian spirit through our behaviour curriculum, called, ‘The St Michael’s Way’. In order to build character and Christian spirit, we define the behaviours and habits that we expect students to demonstrate. We want to support our pupils to grow into adults who are polite, respectful, grateful and who always consider others.

We believe that as pupils practise these behaviours, over time they become automatic routines that positively shape how they feel about themselves and how other people perceive them. We expect all our pupils to know that ‘The St Michael’s Way’ curriculum must be followed at all times in order to become better learners and to build positive habits which will help everyone to be successful throughout life.

Our Learning Behaviours

Our school has three simple learning behaviours that all staff and children consistently refer to as 'Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Responsible' - The 3R's.

Zone Board and STAR Behaviours

Each classroom has a behaviour board which contains a zone board and an A4 version of the 3R's poster. The 'Zone Board' is in the shape of an inverted pyramid. Each child starts on the green zone labelled 'be ready, be respectful and be responsible'. Above the green zone, a silver zone is labelled 'I am a role model' alongside the learning skills and core values. At the top of the zone board, there is a gold zone labelled 'I am outstanding.' Each new day is a fresh start.

Children are encouraged to exhibit STAR behaviours. When pupils are noticed for exhibiting the star behaviours, they will move up the Zone Board.

Voice Levels

 Staff will explicitly teach the children the appropriate voice levels for different activities.

Behaviour Around School 

When moving around the school building children should demonstrate appropriate behaviour by following WOW Walking and Marvellous Manners.
