Wooloowin State School is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing.
Wooloowin State School utilises the School-wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) Framework to implement whole school practices regarding student behaviour.
School-wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is an evidence-based whole school approach to managing student behaviour. This approach helps schools to create positive learning environments by developing proactive whole-school systems of student and staff support.
Within SWPBS, the key to facilitating responsible student behaviour and improving relationships is explicit teaching of school-wide expectations (PDF, 163 KB) and regularly acknowledging students for keeping to them.
Strong emphasis is placed on data-based decision-making and regular evaluation of the SWPBS implementation. Data shows that the process helps reduce problem behaviour and increase academic performance.
The Wooloowin State School Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students (PDF, 512 KB) is designed to facilitate high standards of behaviour so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community.
