Responsible Behaviour Plan

The purpose of our Responsible Behaviour Plan is to ensure that the behaviour of all members of the school community allows students to learn and teachers to teach. The Plan applies to all members of our school community engaged in school activities.
 

Universal Behaviour Support

 
Whole school behaviour support procedures and processes at Deception Bay State High School apply to all students and staff across all settings. Our Student Welfare Team oversees implementation, adjustment, and evaluation of our whole school approaches and related school activities. Strategies include having:
 
  •     a clearly stated, positive purpose as outlined in the Responsible School   

              Behaviour Plan   

  •     a set of positively stated expectations through The Code of School Behaviour
  •     active engagement by students
  •     procedures for teaching school-wide expectations incorporating SWPB  

              and the behaviour matrix. 


School Wide Positive Behaviour Program – The Right Way, the Smart Way, The D’Bay Way.

School Response to unacceptable behaviour

 
Unacceptable behaviour can only occur in the wider context of acceptable behaviour and students need to know the standard of acceptable behaviour. At Deception Bay SHS acceptable behaviour is:
 
·         Safe, Healthy and Lawful
·         Respectful and Orderly
·         Productively Participating
 
In alignment with The Code of School Behaviour when applying consequences, the individual circumstances and actions of the student and the needs and rights of school community members are considered at all times. The restorative practice process in dealing with unacceptable behaviour would generally follow:
  • Enquiring : ‘Who did what and when to whom? And also ‘What were you thinking at the time? How did you feel at the time? Now?
 
  • Exploring the implication/harm : ‘ Who do you think has been harmed by what has happened? By your actions? How has this affected others? You? Your family?’.
 
  • Accountability : ‘What has to happen to make things right/better? ‘What do you need to say or do?’
 

Deception Bay State High School has specific policies on the following:
 
  • responsible behaviour for students
  • 
students smoking at school

  • cancellation of enrolment (applicable for students over 16 years of age)
  • student dress code

  • mobile phone use at school

  • homework
  • 
assessment

  • harassment
 

Policies are developed and implemented to enable students to learn effectively in the classroom.
