Behaviour management

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support

Pomona State School has worked extensively to create a whole school approach to the explicit teaching of expected behaviours. This has involved the establishment of the Expectations Matrix (84KB PDF) which outlines expected behaviours in all areas, in line with our school’s Code of Conduct. (106KB PDF)

Promoting Self-Managed Behaviour through Our Code of Conduct

• Care for self

• Care for others

• Care for learning

• Care for our environment

• Use common courtesies

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support works on the premise that explicit teaching and modelling of behaviours assist children in making positive behaviour choices. This is the role of all members of the school community including cleaning staff, canteen convenors and volunteers. All stakeholders were consulted in the establishment of our matrix.

To support the expectations matrix, expected behaviours are explicitly taught in the locations the behaviour is expected to be used, and are reinforced through a variety of means including; focus lessons, parade reminders and visual prompts around the school.

Supported Play operates every break time to support children in learning 'the rules of the game.'  In a small group situation a staff member works with children during break times, supporting them in developing appropriate social skills so they can participate fully in games and activities with their peers.

A Shared Responsibility

The welfare of students is a shared responsibility across the school, rather than the sole responsibility of the class teacher.

Therefore, all members of our school community are committed to:

• Using common courtesies;

• Showing respect and caring for others;

• Taking care of personal belongings and the belongings of others;

• Following Code of Conduct;

• Helping others work and learn;

• Maintaining our school as a safe, clean, healthy and happy place;

• Respecting others’ ways and ideas;

• Being honest, friendly and caring; and,

• Sorting out problems fairly and calmly.
