A Positive Learning Environment
At our school, staff work actively to ensure they are able to provide a positive caring and effective classroom and school environment.
Our School rules which guide behaviour are:
Our school discipline policy ensures that those children who may have difficulty behaving are not allowed to stop the teachers from teaching or to stop other children from learning.
Programmes and strategies are put in place to encourage positive behaviours and parents are kept informed of any developing problems.
The basic principle of our discipline policy is that the individual is the only one who can control their behaviour and it is up to the individual to make the appropriate choices.
Our children are recognised and valued for their positive input and are publicly recognised for their achivements whether they be social, academic or sporting.
We promote open communication between home and school and we will notify home of any concerns we may have. We appreciate parents and caregivers contacting school when you have concerns or are aware of situations that may be affecting your child's learning.
