Anti Bullying

Student Code of Conduct

Kings Park Primary School community believes in the need for students, teachers and families to enjoy a caring, supportive and safe learning environment. An environment that promotes self-esteem facilitates positive independent behaviour and encourages participation in all aspects of school life. Such a healthy outlook and environment enhances student learning.

 The Student Code of Conduct is based on the following principles: -

 

  • All individuals are valued and treated with respect.
  • Students have a right to work in a secure environment without intimidation, bullying or harassment where they can fully develop their talents, interests and ambitions.
  • Parents have a right to expect that their children will be educated in a secure environment that encourages care, courtesy and respect for the rights of others.
  • Teachers have a right to expect that they can teach in an orderly and co-operative environment.
  • Parents have an obligation to support the school in its efforts to create and maintain a positive teaching and learning environment.
  • Principals and staff have an obligation to parents and students to fairly; reasonably and consistently implement the Code of Conduct.
  • The most positive results emerge when students, teachers and parents work as a team.

 

 

The school community is committed to using consistent, positive approaches to discipline by encouraging personal responsibility and self-discipline.

 

In order to maintain a consistent approach, at the beginning of each school year, teachers (in their team groups) discuss and agree on school rules and classroom behaviour plans. Teachers will discuss with students, their rights and responsibilities. Based on these discussions class and playground expectations, rules and consequences will be formulated.

 

To encourage the best possible behaviours, families will receive written information on rules and consequences and are requested to support the behaviour expectations established by the school. The Student Code of Conduct is approved by School Council. The implementation of the Code of Conduct is reviewed and monitored regularly by the Principal and staff.
