Golden Time is a positive incentive and sanctions system.
Golden Time is a weekly timetabled slot of at least half an hour
Each child starts the week with this 30 minutes
Children choose an activity they would like to do in this time
The children keep their Golden Time if they keep the Golden Rules all week
Golden Time is taken off in minutes (up to 5 minutes at a time)
If appropriate, a warning is given before any Golden Time is lost
When it is Golden Time the children that have lost Golden Time sit out for their allotted time
Golden Time ensures that children who behave well are rewarded. The message we will be sending the children is if they are sensible, co-operate and work to the best of their ability, they will be consistently rewarded for their efforts.
Staff will use their professional judgements in implementing Golden Time.
