Behaviour

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..

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.

More information

If you would like to know more about behaviour support or have any concerns about your child’s behaviour please contact the school.
