Behaviour management

At Undurba State School all children are valued and nurtured.  It is recognized that children sometimes learn through making mistakes. When this occurs and a school rule (Care for yourself, Care for Others, Care for your Learning and Care for your School) is broken a staff member discusses the incident with the student and makes a decision whether the student should attend Positive Planning.

There is a dedicated Positive Planning Room which is open every break and staffed by the Behaviour Support Teacher and another staff member.

The referring staff member sends the student with a referral form. The referral form outlines the incident.

On arrival at the room the students are given a written or pictorial form to complete.  The supervising staff read the referral and the student form and discusses the incident with the student. The student is always given the opportunity to share what has happened.

Points the children reflect upon and work on within the process are: Why they were sent, what school rule they have broken and how, what they can do to improve the existing situation and if a similar situation was to arise how they could deal with it.

The length of time a student spends at positive planning varies. The students complete the process at their own pace.

When a student attends positive planning either a letter is given to the student to take home and share with their parent or carer or they are phoned.

Positive planning is an opportunity for the student to learn.

School Wide Positive Behaviour

In 2011, Undurba State School started on the School Wide Positive Behaviour (SWPBS) journey.

SWPBS is a program designed to

  • reduce the frequency of behaviour incidents and school disciplinary absences

  • improve school climate and

  • improve social and learning outcomes

Students are explicitly taught the knowledge and skills they need to demonstrate the appropriate behaviours that we expect from our students.  Each week, every teacher teaches a special behaviour lesson.  This is reinforced in our school newsletter and at our school assemblies.
