Classroom Behaviour Management

All students are entitled to the right to learn in class and we work constantly to uphold a number of principles to guarantee the safety and wellbeing of all students at all times. Our students have all been introduced to our Bushy Boy Behaviours in which we have utilised the Positive Behaviours intervention Strategies framework to support and reward students for working committedly in upholding our school values.

This staff member will either directly intervene in the students behavioural choices or refer to the appropriate next level. The following diagram demonstrates the current student referral process at our school.
