Behaviour management

Newtown State School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school. The goal of PBL is to improve and maximise academic and social outcomes for all students. PBL is about creating environments to increase the likelihood that students learn and use appropriate behaviours. Our vision clearly outlines the high expectations we have of our students, and indeed of all members of our school community. Our expectations are based on three values; safety, respect and responsibility. These values form the foundation of the expectations that are explicitly taught to students and shared each week in the newsletter. The Newtown State School Responsible Behaviour Plan provides an overview of how PBL is implemented at Newtown State School. This plan outlines how positive behaviour is acknowledged and how problem behaviour is managed. It is designed to ensure that high standards of behaviour are maintained so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community.

At Newtown State School we value positive relationships based on mutual respect. Everyone has a right to feel safe at school and in their workplace and there are responsibilities we all must accept as participants in a school community. Our school community does not tolerate bullying or harassment in any form between or towards anyone. Positive outcomes can be achieved when we work together towards the same goal; to create a safe and supportive environment that generates optimal conditions to achieve the best outcomes possible for students, staff and families.
