Te Uku School Student Behaviour Management Plan
GOAL: To maintain a safe, respectful learning environment for all students and staff.
- Effective behaviour management is essential to sustaining a learning environment in which everyone’s rights and responsibilities are addressed.
- Behaviour learning is an important and integral part of the school curriculum.
- Behaviour learning requires children to actively reflect on both appropriate and inappropriate behaviours.
We know that:
- Behaviour is learned
- Behaviour is conditioned
- Behaviour is purposeful
- Behaviour is chosen
- Behaviour communicates information about needs
- Behaviour can be the result of BDS (Bad Day Syndrome) caused by tiredness, friendship hassles, hunger, sickness, loss, etc
- Behaviour can be changed
- Behaviour is taught
We expect ALL students to behave appropriately. We know that we have to support children to maintain consistently appropriate behaviour. Therefore, our behaviour management practices are focused on:
- Preventing and minimising inappropriate behaviours
- Encouraging appropriate behaviours
- Correcting inappropriate behaviours
- Repairing and rebuilding relationships when things have gone wrong
- Applying consequences for inappropriate behaviours (either immediately or after consultation with other teachers / parents)
