Behaviour Improvement Programme
|1||Warning||Verbal, name on board.|
|2||Consequence||Teacher applies a specific consequence eg move seat, stay in, time out, After school detention.|
|3||Orange Card||Orange sticker in diary, Co-ordinator notified, After school detention may be given.|
|4||Red Card||Sent to deputy principal.|
At the first sign of inappropriate behaviour the student will be warned by the teacher. If this behaviour is repeated, the teacher applies specific consequences, e.g. move seat, stay in at recess or lunch, yard duty, time out, After School Detention.
If inappropriate behaviour continues, or if the inappropriate behaviour is serious enough in itself, the student may be given an Orange Card: an orange sticker, with details on it, will be placed in the student's Diary, and the Primary, Middle or Senior School Co-ordinator will be informed. The student may receive an After School Detention as well at this point.
If the inappropriate behaviour continues, or again if the original inappropriate behaviour is serious enough in the first place, the student will be sent to the Primary or Secondary Deputy Principal, who will give the student a Red Card. Parents will be informed and the student will receive an After School Detention or Internal Suspension at the school.
If a student receives three Orange Cards in one term, or four Orange Cards in a semester, these will be converted to a Red Card. Four Red Cards in one school year will result in a review of the student's enrolment.
AFTER SCHOOL DETENTION
Detentions are held on Friday afternoons from 3.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. in the Resource Centre. Detentions may be given for repeated lateness without a significant reason/note from parents, failure to do homework without reason, uniform infractions, or other failures to comply with school rules and policies. Parents are informed of detentions through a diary sticker. If a student receives three detentions in one term, or four in a semester, these will be converted to a Red Card as above.
Students work in isolation from other students in the Resource Centre for the whole school day.
