Gatehouse Primary School – Playground Behaviour Policy

We all have…

A Right To Play

What does this mean?

  • We have regular play times outside at school

  • Outside is a fun and safe place for us to play

  • We sometimes get to play in class (when it is appropriate)

What are our responsibilities?

  • We need to be kind with our words and actions

  • We should use the playground equipment for what it is for

  • We should put playground equipment away when we have finished with it

  • We should listen to the adult in charge on the playground

  • We should respect other children’s play space

  • We should look after other people on the playground

  • We should make new children and visitors welcome

What are the outcomes if we are not responsible?

  • You will be reminded of your responsibilities and asked to stop the behaviour that is causing upset

  • If the behaviour continues you will be asked to sit on the bench for 5 minutes

  • If your behaviour is continually spoiling other children’s play time it might be necessary to have separate breaks
