We want to ensure a safe and happy school for your child. Supporting student behaviour is critical for promoting, engaging and lifting student performance and wellbeing. Schools aim to provide inclusive learning environments that are collaborative, supportive and cohesive. The School Community Charter outlines what this looks like for parents, carers, educators and school staff.
Student behaviour strategy
Our Student Behaviour Strategy helps build an inclusive education system where every student is known, valued and cared for, and all students can learn to their fullest ability. We know that students who feel supported and safe are more likely to be more connected to school and active participants in their learning.
Positive and respectful learning environments promote wellbeing, engagement and improved academic achievement. The Strategy supports a preventative, positive, student-centred, school-family-community approach in which consistency is key. The needs of all students will be met by a care continuum.
Behaviours of concern
Children and young adults can display difficult behaviour at times as normal part of growing up. Your child may have been affected by the behaviour of others or affect others by their behaviour. More information on what to do if your child has told you about behaviour issues at school is available on the website.
If you would like to know more about behaviour support or have any concerns about your child’s behaviour please contact the school.
Telephone interpreter service
If you wish to contact the school and need assistance with English please call the telephone interpreter service on 131 450, tell them what language you need and ask the operator to phone the school. The operator will get an interpreter on the line to assist you with your conversation. You will not be charged for this service.
