Behaviour management

Pumicestone State School with the support of Education Queensland is committed to provisions that ensure all young Queenslanders have a right to and receive a quality education in a safe and supportive environment. Pumicestone State School is a PBL School – Positive Behaviour for Learning.

 

We have introduced numerous processes to acknowledge excellent behaviour in class and in the playground.  When students, staff and parents/carers have consistent and high expectations students are supported to achieve their very best results.

 

At Pumicestone State School we believe it is important to encourage increasing responsibility in all students. Our roles, rights and responsibilities are clearly defined. To this end, appropriate behaviour is regularly encouraged, acknowledged and rewarded. Unacceptable behaviour is addressed according to the Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students. t Pumicestone State School we believe it is important to encourage increasing responsibility in all students.

Students are explicitly taught the knowledge and skills they need to demonstrate the appropriate behaviours that we expect from our students.  Each week, every teacher teaches a special behaviour lesson and this is reinforced throughout the school, in our school newsletter and at our school assembly.

 

The major focus at Pumicestone is promoting positive behaviour. Encouragement such as certificates, awards and praise are utilised as well as teaching specific social/behavioural skills as part of the curriculum.

 

The school matrix outlines the expectations for behaviour in all settings under the headings of the school values:

  • We Nurture
  • We Challenge
  • We Care
  • Growth Mindset
