Our school community has developed a plan for promoting and managing behaviour based on our shared belief that all members of our community have certain rights and responsibilities. We believe in creating an environment that respects the following rights:
- The rights of all students to learn and teachers to teach;
- The right to be treated with respect;
- The rights of all to be safe.
Student Code of Conduct
The Student Code of Conduct clearly sets out expectations about staff responsibilities to support students to understand and meet discipline expectations of the school, and guidance on the application, where required, of disciplinary consequences.
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)
Regents Park State School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school in implementation phase. Collaboratively with our school wide
community we have developed a STAR System based on our school values. Student behaviour is
acknowledged verbally and non-verbally throughout the school day in both classroom and non-classroom areas. Students consistency in demonstrating the school values and STAR behaviour is
rewarded with the receiving of STAR Pins and attending STAR Club at the end of each Term.
We acknowledge students demonstrating expected behaviours verbally and non-verbally.
- In the classroom – we distribute STARS using a self-inking STAR stamp or paper STAR tokens
when verbally acknowledging STAR behaviour
- In the playground – we issue paper STAR tokens when verbally acknowledging STAR
- Stamps & tokens collected are transferred to STAR cards by the classroom teacher
Term 1 – Upon completion of 5 Star Cards students are eligible to work towards their Bronze Pin.
Term 2 – Upon completion of 5 Star Cards students are eligible to work towards their Bronze and
Term 3 – Upon completion of 5 Star Cards students are eligible to work towards their Bronze, Silver
and Gold Pins.
Term 4 – Upon completion of 5 Star Cards students are eligible to work towards their Bronze, Silver,
Gold Pins and Medallion.
In Term 4 if students have earned Bronze, Silver, Gold Pins and Medallion they may then proceed directly
onto their Trophy Shooting Star Card for consistently demonstrating STAR Behaviour throughout the
year and recognize their attendance at school for the year if it is 95% or above.
This plan aims to encourage responsible behaviour, self-control and social competency. This is a
learned process and will be achieved through teaching appropriate strategies that enable children to
use positive behaviours and through supporting them as they learn these skills. Children are able to
develop positive relationships and are encouraged to make decisions and choices about their behaviour
in order to meet their needs in the best possible way.
Our Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students involves all areas of our school life. For those students
who choose to display inappropriate behaviour, there will be appropriate consequences. When a
child’s conduct becomes a concern to the school, we will contact parents to develop a combined
behaviour management plan. If students cannot display appropriate behaviour and do not respect the
rights of other students they may be suspended or excluded.
