St John the Baptist Vision Statement
At St John the Baptist School we believe that all students, their families and staff have a right to a safe and supportive learning environment. We share a responsibility to foster, promote and encourage all positive behaviours from all students. We believe in adopting a proactive collaborative school culture which is characterised by a sense of collective responsibility for behavioural issues and to implement universal definitions, strategies and consequences.
The aim for Positive Behaviour Learning is to actively teach and reinforce desired behaviour.
All children know and understand the one school rule of being a respectful, responsible learner. Our Behaviour Management Policy is based on PBL and lessons are taught fortnightly. Positive Behaviour is encouraged and students who constantly follow the school rule of being a respectful, responsible learner are rewarded with merit awards at our fortnightly assemblies. The names of students receiving academic and positive behaviour awards are recognised at assemblies and in our school newsletter.
Students also receive a communication log which is sent home each week. This log gives an overview of student’s behaviour based on the school rules of being a respectful, responsible learner. On a Friday, students are given a score for their behaviour over the course of the week. As students accumulate points they will receive a special award based on the number of points they have earned.
