i have been a teacher for some ten years and i have always been amused that every school i taught at (and i did a lot of supply to 11-18 year old schools) had a discipline policy but not one had self-discipline system there are always attempts to promote good behaviour quoting various ideal behaviour inspiring quotes pillars of respect etc but nothing which constituted a system i developed self-organising techniques for my classes http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/educare/5511660 one of which was ABC-classes it's pretty simple if everyone has their self-discipline that's an A class if one or two people lose their self-discipline but another student or teacher helps them by drawing their attention to it that's a B class if a few people lose their self-discipline and they do not respond to attention from classmates or teacher that's a C class it is not a judgement or award merely a reflection on how the whole class has behaved the types of activities etc possible depend on the type of class so plenty of games for a B or A class and even 20% google time for an A class (i find the default teacher style is to teach a C-class and hence kids are all to eager to please;) it's to do with trust mainly between the students themselves do other teachers have anything like this? would you care to share?
