Rules and policies

Positive Behaviours for Learning - PBL

Positive Behaviours for Learning is a system of support based on common sense
and common decency, designed to help create a positive school environment.
At Norfolk Village State School we support our school rules: I am safe, I am respectful and I
am a learner by establishing proactive and prosocial behaviour support processes.
·       define, teach and support appropriate student behaviours,
·       deliver a clear and consistent message to all students,
·        present a fortnightly focus skill that is outlined in the school newsletter, taught in all classrooms and reinforced on parade,
·        have signage in our playgrounds and all teaching spaces,
·        encourage students to use the hi-5 (talk friendly, talk firmly, ignore & walk away, warn and report),
·        recognise and celebrate positive behaviour. Each teacher aims to hand out 6 gotchas per day and 4-6 gotchas per playground duty, 1 student from each class is nominated for Kool Kids Café each fortnight, 2 Student of the Week certificates per class are awarded each parade, class recognition and prize draws on parade twice a term,
·        have a centrally located buddy bench for students who are struggling socially, needing a change or looking to start new friendship.
