Focus On - High Expectations and Clear Expectations

28/05/2014

Over the past 3-4 years, our school has been on the Positive Behaviour Support journey.  This has allowed us to come together as a school community and make some decisions about how we need to behave, learn, organise and treat each other in our school environment.  Our common language of expectations are:

BE SAFE BEST EFFORT

BE RESPECTFUL

 

All of our discussions with students and parent revolve around these important, high and clear expectations.  We talk with students regularly about these expectations and complete weekly focus lessons with students on key areas where student behaviour has not been appropriate.

 

We have had some great results over the past 3 years, with many of our on-going behaviour problems reduced to very minor problems that are managed quickly, allowing students and teachers to get back onto the core business of learning.  Have a look at some of our results:

Our data shows that we are supporting students to become better at solving problems at their smallest level, using appropriate strategies and dealing with problems such as SAFE and RESPECTFUL strategies.  TEAM KRUGER is working for our students.
