Behaviour Management

LINDEES aim is to create an environment that encourages acceptable behaviour from all the children attending both after school and holiday club. Staff will encourage and praise children for positive behaviour. The following behaviour is not acceptable at LINDEES Biting, hitting, pinching, swearing and verbal and emotional abuse. In the case of a child showing signs of unacceptable behaviour, they are taken to one side and it is explained to them that it is the behaviour and not the child that is unwelcome. If the behaviour continues a period of ‘time out’ will be given. Parents are always informed when collecting their child at the end of a session.
