Behaviour expectations

St Anthony's Student Behaviour Support Plan has been developed to clearly outline expectations in relation to whole school behaviour and to establish the guidelines upon which students are supported within the Gospel values espoused at our school.

This plan has been written with the St Anthony’s School community in focus and the particular needs of our students in mind. It is designed to be a guide to best practice, reflecting on the consistent approaches by all staff, while at the same time providing a reinforcement of behaviour teaching methods which are individualised and inclusive.

At St Anthony's, we view all behaviour incidents through Restorative Practices lens. This is a whole school teaching and learning approach that encourages behaviour that is supportive and respectful. All staff are professionally trained in this approach and when an incident occurs the following questions form the conversation and reflection.

  1. What happened?
  2. Who has been hurt/affected or upset?
  3. What can you do to make things right?
  4. How can we support you with this?

It encourages individuals to be accountable for their behaviour and to repair any harm caused to others as a result of their actions.

At St Anthony’s, we have four behaviour expectations that are explicitly taught:

* We follow directions straight away.

*We keep our hands, feet and objects to ourselves.

*We listen attentively.

* We show respect to ourselves, others and the environment.

St Anthony’s School possesses a strong commitment to working with families in order for students to be supported with their behaviour in a seamless and consistent way. Our goal is to assist students to become prepared for their world when they leave the safety of the school environment, being capable and responsible citizens who can solve problems with confidence and success.
