PRIDE Kindness CURIOSITY
At Wandong Primary School we are committed to making a difference by developing confident, independent and resilient learners who strive for personal excellence.
School Wide Positive Behaviour
Introducing, modelling and reinforcing positive social behaviour is an important component of all student’s education. Teaching behavioural expectations and rewarding students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehaviour to occur before responding.
In 2021, we commenced our journey in developing this whole school approach to positive behaviour. School Wide Positive Behaviour Support is a system of tools and strategies for defining, teaching, acknowledging appropriate behaviour, and correcting inappropriate behaviour in a supportive nature. It is a framework for creating individualised school systems that enhance student outcomes and academic success. It is preventative, and switches focus from negative behaviours and exchanges, to positive expectations and interactions – leading to the promotion of social proficiency and academic success.
We recognise that learning social skills and socially acceptable behaviours is a process, which everybody moves through at different stages. Learning appropriate social skills is seen in the same light as learning how to read, write or complete a mathematical task. Some students need more assistance in some areas and less in others.
At Wandong Primary school, our values will be reflected in our everyday learning and displayed and taught in all areas of the school. Our Values are Pride, Kindness and Curiosity.
