Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students
Norfolk Village 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.
Our Responsible Behaviour Plan outlines our system for facilitating positive behaviours, preventing problem behaviours and responding to unacceptable behaviours. Our school community has identified the following school rules to teach and promote our high standards of responsible behaviour - I am Safe, I am a Learner and I am Respectful.
Gifted and Talented Students
As a school we work collaboratively with a cluster of local schools to review our policy for Gifted and Talented students. We are committed in providing a personalised learning environment for our students differentiating the curriculum and or teaching pedagogy where appropriate. Identified students can also be offered a range of extra-curricular activities to further enhance their learning strengths.
