and to support the following school Core Values:
- We uphold the principals of equality of opportunity and fair treatment of all individuals.
- We respect ourselves, we respect each other and we respect our environment.
- We value honesty, fairness and integrity.
In addition the Policy:
- Creates a framework whereby the whole school community supports and gives students credit for positive behaviour.
- Recognises that ethical behaviour is an area of human development that matures over time, therefore, a major aim of the Policy is to assist students to develop in this regard.
- We acknowledge that students will make mistakes, and ought to be given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes, rather than be punished.
- We recognise that some students may be resistant to correction, or act in a very serious manner, and that consequences (not punishment) are required to manage that student’s behaviour.
- Some students will have particular behavioural difficulties that will require an individual plan at some stage of their development.
