Game 'helping children's behaviour' piloted in Oxfordshire


A game designed to reduce disruptive behaviour in schools is being piloted in six primary schools.

The Good Behaviour Game originated in America but teachers say that it is now producing dramatic results in Oxfordshire.

Cheryl MacLennan, teacher at St Joseph's Primary, Carterton, said: "At the beginning they were really loud, shouting at one another, always out of their seats… now they will do anything for that badge, they will work hard, they will be polite to one another."
