We believe that central to Student Engagement and Wellbeing is to keep students safe and provide a positive learning environment. Student management approaches need to be fair, consistent and transparent.


Strategies which promote high standards of behaviours

- Providing an curriculum that is rich, engaging and challenging for students·

- Positive recognition and reward for following expected behaviours

- Expected behaviours re-iterated, modelled and practiced often

- Negotiated classroom rules

- Consistent rules and expectations

- Consistent approaches to student management

- Leadership role for students


An approach which ensures self-discipline and responsibility

-The underlying principles of our welfare and discipline plan are based on Canter’s assertive discipline model. This supports a set of rules, behaviours and consequences which are known by the children and to a degree developed by the children. This knowledge of and participation in the rules and consequences provides children with the opportunity to monitor and modify their behaviour knowing in advance the likely consequences.


Strategies which ensure a safe and secure learning environment

- Clear rules and consequences known by all

- Positive reinforcement

- Exiting procedures for those who behave inappropriately

- Anti-bullying approaches and regular ‘bully surveys’ to encourage students to express their views

- Individual and small group work in behavioural and social skills

- Targeted individual learning plans ensuring student access to learning at their appropriate level

- Stimulating and motivating learning environment

- Cultural awareness experiences

- Leadership roles for students

- Student of the Week and other recognition programs

- Classroom provision of code of conduct including rights and responsibilities
