Managing Behaviour

As teachers, we support children to make choices which ensure they are successful inside and outside the classroom.  When behaviours are present that are counterproductive to this, we work with the child to ensure the best outcome for them in the future.


To give our students the best chance of long-lasting changes in behaviour, it is important that they are empowered to be part of the solution, and do not see this as a process that is ‘done to them’.


Staff at our school recognise that every set of circumstances is unique.  We, therefore, believe in listening to and appreciating different points of view.  With this information, we make an informed decision and a plan to help things move forward for all involved.  In general, here are some of the procedures we follow: 


Consequences for actions may include:

-       Finishing work in their own time

-       Apologising to others involved for their actions and or working with other involved parties to make things right.

-       Loss of privileges.

-       Removal from classmates (into another class, separated from others in the classroom).

-       Making a plan for their behaviour.

-       Filling in the ‘Taking Responsibility’, or ‘Restorative Conversations’ forms.

-       Communicating to parents about what has happened and the consequences of the actions (letter, phone).

-       Community service to the school.

-       Stand down from school.

-       Choosing another school.
