Welfare Overview


To enhance the development of positive relationships between students, teachers and other members of the school community.



  • All individuals should be valued and treated with respect
  • The rights and responsibilities of students, parents and school staff should be clearly communicated and then honoured
  • The physical and emotional environment for teaching and learning should be safe and secure, and appropriate for the stage of development of the students
  • School decision-making processes should be collaborative
  • The school's policies and procedures should be fair, logical and implemented consistently.


  • Teachers will create a positive classroom environment where students feel a sense of physical and emotional security, consistency and experience appropriate feedback to assist them to behave appropriately.
  • Teachers will model positive communication and behaviour, and encourage students to do the same
  • The Charter Codes of Conduct will be honoured and discipline issues will be treated as teaching and learning related issues and supported by a whole school sense of responsibility
  • Students with their classroom teachers will establish and display the school rules and responsibilities
  • Peer support, peer mediation and self-esteem programs will be implemented. The timeout practice will be limited
  • The use of 'Restorative Justice Scripts' will be consistently applied by all staff to encourage students to change their behaviour.
