St Luke's Behaviour Support Plan
“Mindfields of Behaviour” underpins our Student Behaviour Program. This program involves students in the development of a Class Charter which determines behavioural expectations in each classroom. Our staff teach appropriate behaviour and expect students to make good choices and to accept responsibility for their actions .
Home and school should work hand in hand to develop within children a sense of respect and responsibility towards themselves, others and their environment.
To this end St Luke’s School expects each child to honour the School’s Behaviour Management policy by :-
Because we believe in the dignity and sacredness of the human person, corporal punishment is incongruous with our values and therefore is not a part of our way of operating. Instead, we attempt to use informed approaches which respect the dignity of each child and which challenge children, in a supportive way, to choose behaviours which are appropriate to various social, educational, cultural and religious settings.
All aspects of discipline within our school should have as their prime motive the good of the child and should be administered with a Christian love following Christ’s example and separating the deed from the doer. Extremely serious offences against good conduct may result in the suspension of a pupil to allow thorough consideration of the offence and its possible consequences for the pupil, family and school community. Expulsion of a child from school may be done only with the consent of the Director of Catholic Education. Parent support in this area of discipline is an enrolment condition and an on-going expectation of our school and its members.
