Newtown State School is as committed to providing a safe, respectful and responsible learning and working environment as it is committed to ensuring students achieve success in the curriculum.

Newtown State School made a commitment in 2011 to implement School Wide Positive Behaviour Supports after a review of our data. Our vision, expectations and rules have been endorsed by the P&C.

The Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students documents the expected high standards of personal behaviour so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community.

Our vision is that every child at Newtown State School aspires to be a successful learner; to attain excellence in personal achievement and behaviour.

We believe that positive behaviour is enhanced through a whole school approach; our standards are consistent, accountable and fair, as are the interventions and consequences.

Our expectations are that learners are: 

  • Safe
  • Respectful
  • Responsible

These expectations encompass the school rules that are taught across the whole school.

These expectations also apply to all adults in our school community: visitors, parents and staff.
