Fighting and ‘playfighting’

Hello all, after a few incidents of fighting, play fighting and rough play this week, I wanted to make it clear to all that none of the above are acceptable behaviours at Greenfield-or any school!

In our experience, play fighting leads to real fighting. Rough play often leads to people becoming hurt.

We have a strong and positive behaviour policy which focusses on praising children for making all those right choices for excellent learning.

Sadly this week, quite a few children have been struggling to make the right choices. Next week’s assembly focus will be playfighting, and the consequences if it. We will also have a general recap on expectations at Greenfield. We will continue to reward those who make the right choices, and we promise to notice, celebrate (and tell you) when they do!

How can you help?
Please do talk to your children about the consequences of fighting, and hurting others.
Please praise them for making the right choices-like getting on gold!
Please support us in helping them to do well-we really appreciate it when we call you about these things and you work with us to help.

To end on a positive-here are some of our gold superstars from today-we had so many we ran out of stickers!
