Zones of Regulation

We are really pleased to announce that The Zones of Regulation Programme is now in place in lower, middle and upper school classrooms!

The zones are used by teachers to help pupils recognise and understand their feelings, this will lead to pupil expressing or regulating their feelings rather than reacting to them.   

At Oak View School, we recognise that the young people may experience a range of complex and intense emotions. Sometimes those emotions can be tough to even identify, let alone deal with.

That’s why we are fully committed to providing our young people with the necessary tools to regulate strong emotions and work towards being independent in finding solutions to counteract them.

The Zones of Regulation is a great tool for supporting young people to be able to do these things, using simple concepts and colour coding.

There are four areas: good to go (calm, fine, happy,ok), running slow (bored,ill,tired,slow) caution (worried, excited, anxious, wiggly) and stop (angry, upset, mad, frustrated).

The message is: it is ok to feel frustrated or anxious or wiggly, but it is how we react to those that really counts.

  • ‘very impressed with the school’s clear sense of purpose in preparing its students for life after school. ’

  • ‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’
