Mellers Primary Sanctions

(This is what happens if you break the rules)

In Foundation Stage:

If you break a rule, you will sit on the ‘thinking chair’ until you have calmed down

In KS1

  1. Verbal warning
  2. First letter of your name on the board
  3. Your whole name is written on the board
  4. A tick is put by your name (check)
  5. A second check, which means that you have to do detention in the hall
  6. A third check means that you have to spend timeout (1 hour) in another classroom
  7. A fourth check means that you have to spend half a day in isolation in the
    Headteacher’s room

In KS2

  1. Verbal warning
  2. First letter of your name is written on the board
  3. Your whole name is written on the board
  4. A tick is put by your name (a check), which means that you have to do detention in the hall
  5. A second check, which means that you have to do timeout (1 hour) in another
    classroom
  6. A third check, which means that you have to do timeout (half a day) in another
    classroom
  7. A fourth check means that you have to spend half a day in isolation in the
    Headteacher’s room

BUT any violence, bullying, discrimination or serious damage to school property will be dealt with immediately by the Headteacher and not by the above system.


Positives will be awarded for:

Good effort with a particular piece of work, spelling tests or multiplication test; being on task and ready to work; bringing reading diaries to school, with evidence of reading with an adult (these are just examples and not an exhaustive list).  They will also be awarded for consistently behaving correctly or for an exceptional piece of work. 

Positives will not be rewarded for:


  • walking quietly along the corridor, sitting ready to listen in assembly as these are behaviours that we expect as the ‘norm’ at Mellers Primary and which will be rewarded with a comment from a member of staff.

  • They will not be rewarded for good behaviour in detention, walking ‘nicely’ to time out or at any point during an outburst of bad behaviour.  At no point will any child be rewarded with a positive during or after such an outburst. 

Each child will have a sticker chart, on which the positives will be recorded.  They will be responsible for their own chart and keep it in their tray.  When each card is filled, the children will bring them to Miss Dawson, and will be awarded a certificate in assembly: bronze certificate 50 positives, silver certificate 100 positives, gold certificate 150 positives and platinum certificate 200 positives. After 150 positives, they will be taken to Waterstones to choose a special book.
