Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Program

Members of Good Shepherd School community believe the adoption of a positive and preventative approach to Student Behaviour Support should:

  • Create a co-operative and positive attitude to problem solving in the school community;
  • Increase and widen student’s sense of belonging in the school;
  • Allow the development of behaviour expectations and conflict resolution procedures which will promote self-discipline;improve curriculum and instructional practices, which should have a positive effect on student’s attitudes, behaviour and academic results;
  • Allow the school community to sensitively handle personal situations which may be affecting life within the school;
  • Strengthen the interaction between the school and home;
  • Allow students to regulate their own behaviour;
  • Establish acceptable patterns of behaviour which reflect Gospel values and so allow students to develop a conscience, sense of responsibility and willingness to undertake social action;
  • Develop a strong sense of self-worth in students, and
  • Develop a sense of respect for each individual.

Positive behaviour support is based on a balance of rights, responsibilities and consequences. In a supportive school environment, promoting school and classroom rules, and maintaining fair and just consequences, protects rights and promotes responsibility for actions.
