Behaviour Support Policy
International Baccalaureate learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. The implementation of this policy encourages and supports attitudes and behaviours that display a shared understanding of our Essential Agreements. Essential Agreements promote positive behaviours and relationships and reflect a culture that enables students to develop regulation skills using restorative practice principles.
At Coromandel Valley Primary School, we endeavour to provide a school climate that is safe, caring, success-oriented and enables all students to maximise their learning opportunities. We commit to a whole school approach to support children to become increasingly aware of and responsible for their behaviour. All staff at Coromandel Valley Primary School work to create strong relationships with students and to create environments that support optimal engagement and participation in all activities. We believe that all students come to school with a desire to do their best and provide the support required in order to achieve this. Strong relationships between home and school will support this process.
There are times when the teacher’s role and the school’s role are to reinforce and develop appropriate choices of behaviour and respect for the rights of others. Coromandel Valley Primary School has a consistent approach to effectively manage student behaviour. Consequences for inappropriate behaviour and acknowledgement of appropriate behaviour have been established by negotiation between staff, students and the school community and in line with departmental policy.
