Mitchell State School developed a Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students in consultation with our school community through meetings and surveys. A review of school data relating to attendance, school disciplinary absences, school opinion surveys and behaviour incidents from 2009-2014 also informed the development process
Our school community has identified the following values to teach and promote our high standards of responsible behaviour:
My Job – Be a learner. Every day, every lesson, everyone is responsible for their learning.
Society – Be respectful. Every day, every lesson, everyone follows society’s rules, treating people & property with respect.
Safety – Be safe. Every day, every lesson, everyone is keeping self and others safe.
Our school rules have been agreed upon and endorsed by all staff and our school P&C. They are aligned with the values, principles and expected standards outlined in Education Queensland’s Code of School Behaviour, and we will explicitly teach these to the students through weekly lessons. We will have a focus rule each week which will be explicitly taught and practised. The rule will be promoted through parades and newsletters to ensure that our school community are receiving a clear and consistent message regarding acceptable behaviour at Mitchell State School.
Students will receive positive feedback consistently and frequently for complying with these rules. We will focus on the positive behaviours of students to reinforce these standards to all of our students.
