At Flagstone State School we enact a Student Code of Conduct in order to
create and maintain a safe and positive learning environment that fosters academic and social success such that each individual student is given the opportunity to achieve to his/her full potential.
There are five systems utilised in PBL they include:
All students and staff members, across all settings
Settings in which delivery of instruction is emphasised
Settings in which the primary emphasis is on supervision and monitoring (e.g., sporting events, eating areas, walkways)
Individual students whose behaviours are not responsive to school wide (Tier I) prevention.
Engaging and supporting family participation and access to resources of the school
The school has taken the issue of bullying as a very serious matter. Therefore in response to demonstrated bullying behaviours the school has educated students on how to respond to unsafe behaviours. These strategies are discussed with students every term as part of the student induction program and include such resources as the
parents flyer (PDF, 115KB),
student anti-bullying brochure (PDF, 941KB),
Stymie, and discussions on Assemblies.
The community and parent code of conduct supports all familes and the community.
Positive Behaviour and Learning (PBL)
Our philosophical approach to behaviour management is based around Positive Behaviour and Learning and is enacted throughout our school as a focus on being Respectful; Responsible; Safe; and an Active learner.
PBL is based on research and has proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviours in the school resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance. Introducing, modelling, and reinforcing positive social behaviour is an important aspect of a student’s educational experience.
Teaching behavioural expectations and recognizing students for following them is a key feature of this approach.
Aim: To continually improve the behaviour/tone/culture of the school by explicitly teaching those concepts that have been identified through data analysis.
Students are working towards their gold badge. Download the Gold badge behaviour criteria 9PDF, 118KB).
