How does the RJS behaviour system work?

Good to be Green

Good to be green

The school behaviour system is made up of 4 parts and is known as Good to be Green. Fully green, half turned, yellow and red. In this blog you will be told how each part works and how you get to that card.

Fully green

Being fully green is the most wanted card status to have. The first part is staying fully green, here are some top tips on how to stay green!

1. Never interrupt or shout out!

2. Always be ready to learn!

3. Be kind and polite at all times, whether to an adult, peer or even Mr. Kendall!

4. Never push, shove, bully or injure anyone!

5. When socially interacting and you get annoyed, never hurt people, shout or verbally abuse them.

Those were 5 top tips on how to stay green! If you do stay green, you will get an end of term treat!

Half turned

Being half turned is the second stage of good to be green! This is just a warning so don’t worry or fret if this happens. You can get to this stage if you do things including: talking out of turn, disobeying a teacher or TA, and a few more. It is unfortunate if you get here but there is no reason to be too upset. This is the stage where you can turn your behaviour around and make the right choice!


Your card has been turned to yellow. At this point, detention stands. You will be in the DT room and missing 15 minutes of your break time. Ways you can get a yellow include: doing the things to get half turned twice. To get a straight yellow you could: verbally abuse someone, backchat, shout and more. This prevents you from going to the end of term reward.


Now, this is major! You eat lunch at the red card table and miss all of your lunch break. This also means your parents are phoned about your misbehaviour. You’re able to get to this stage by swearing, physically abusing someone, being rude to a teacher, and a few more.

Double and triple red

This is even more serious! This can occur after doing something for a red card twice or three times. With a double, you get a temporary exclusion. Triple, is either a longer or forever, depending on the severity.

At the beginning of the next school day, all of the turned cards are returned to green for a fresh start so students can have another go at staying Good To Be Green.

What do the students think?

So that is how our amazing, whole school behaviour system works! Here are some quotes on how pupils like it:

Firstly, a quote from Kieran in 5W: “I think the system is good and that it is very fair. If I could change one thing it would be to change having the reward every other term to have a huge reward at the end of term if you had 2 or under yellow cards.”

Next, we have a quote from Sameko in 5P: “I think it’s a good way of teaching children how to behave nicely. I think it’s pretty fair. If I could change it, I would have you get a blue card if you were really good.”

Finally, Diona in 5W: “I really like the system and think it is fair. If I could make a change it would be that the children should get more chances before getting a disallowance or consequence.”

That was an explanation of how Good to be Green works in Riverview Junior School and some direct quotes from Blog Club members! Hope you now understand how your or your children’s school behaviour system works.

    I also agree on the behavior system in Riverview. I think it is fair and a good way to keep people quiet and good all the time. It also makes Riverview a better place.

    A great explanation for us newbies at the school! Just to check… regarding the red card consequences… is this if you receive two or more red cards in a term? or a day? Another well written blog. Brilliant stuff x
