ZONES OF ENGAGEMENT GREEN ZONE:I am on target to keep my GIR point. My behaviour, effort and engagement is the best it can possibly be. I am working hard and I am focused on my learning. If I maintain this level of engagement I will make or exceed my level of expected progress PURPLE ZONE: I have received a C1 because I have not brought my homework / equipment or I have arrived late. I must now show my teacher I am ready to learn. BLUE ZONE : I have received a warning from my teacher and I am in danger of losing my GIR point. I am not as focused on my learning as I should be and need to focus more on my learning to avoid getting a C1 Purple Zone: I have received a C1 and lost 5 GIR points I am not engaging in my learning despite receiving a warning. I am not giving 100% effort and, as a result, there is a chance I will not make my expected progress. I must learn from this mistake and concentrate more to avoid further consequences. Blue Zone warning AMBER ZONE : I have ignored warnings and received a C2 (lost 10 GIR points) I have continued to not co-operate with the expectations of my teacher and have not focused on my learning despite being asked to by my teacher. I am in danger of not making my expected progress in the lesson due to my lack of focus. RED ZONE: I have received a C3, lost 15 GIR points and will serve a 30 minute detention. I am continuing not to engage in my learning and, as a result, I am not making my expected progress and my behaviour is affecting the progress of others. It is essential I engage more in the lesson otherwise I will miss out on more learning if I am sent to room 35 for receiving a C4 I have received a C4, lost 20 GIR points and will serve a 60 minute detention because learning has not been my main priority. I will not make my expected progress this lesson
