The Lake Heights Public School Behaviour Code for Students sets out all aspects of our approach to behaviour management. It provides information on how the school recognises and supports the actions that students choose.
All staff follow the procedures in their dealings with students, both in class and on the playground.
Our behaviour code for students is based on the values of:
Care Respect Safety
In the classroom/learning environment the 6 L’s of learning apply. They are:
LOOK at the speaker
LISTEN for information
LIPS are closed
LAPS hands are in them
LEGS are still
We provide encouragement and recognition to those who demonstrate the values of care, respect and safety.
We provide support when those values are not shown.
Encouragement and Recognition
Praise, Prizes and Incentives
Individual teachers will have their own way of indicating a job well done by a student. It may be through the use of:
positive feedback on work,
stamps or stickers,
bell marks (leaving right on the bell),
privileged seating position or leader of the line,
a merit certificate,
a visit to another staff member to show work, etc.
Class Dojo is an interactive behaviour management system, displayed on big screens in each classroom. It allows teachers to encourage and recognise positive behaviours in a visual way.
Students are given their own character on the website classdojo.com and are encouraged with points for positive behaviour in class.
Class Dojo also allows teachers to track a student’s behaviour over a period of time, keeping a record of behaviours they gained, or lost points for.Teachers are able to customise their class by adding different skills they wish to encourage within their room.
We would like to pay our respects and acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school sits, the Wadi Wadi people of the Dharawal Nation, and also pay respect to Elders both past and present.
