Rationale

The Bees Creek Wellbeing and Behaviour Policy is based on the NT Government Safe Schools NT Code of Behaviour applicable to all NT schools, and has a School Wide Positive Behaviour focus.  The purpose of the Bees Creek Primary and Behaviour Policy is to support quality teaching and learning.

All members of the school community are expected to respect the following rights:

  • The rights of all people to be treated with respect and dignity
  • The rights of all students to learn
  • The rights of teachers to teach
  • The rights of all to be safe.

The Department of Employment, Education, and Training is committed to ensuring that all young Territorians have a right to, and receive, a quality education in a safe and supportive learning and teaching environment. Research indicates that improving the quality of teaching and learning drives student behaviour improvement.

School beliefs about behaviour and learning

At Bees Creek School we foster children’s awareness of their rights and responsibilities as part of a harmonious and caring environment.  This is underpinned by our school motto

HARMONY THROUGH CARE;

Commitment to learning

Accepting Responsibility

Respect for self, others and the environment

Excellence in all we do.

Our policy has a focus on the Safe Schools NT Code of Behaviour and incorporates our core values of:

  • A safe and welcoming learning environment
  • A high standard of Teaching and Learning
  • Family and Community involvement

Bees Creek School has a whole school approach which specifically reflects our school values.  We have adopted the framework of the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support system. This approach means we use positive language and focus on explicitly teaching appropriate behaviours and acknowledging or rewarding students for displaying these behaviours. We believe positive behaviour and positive well-being is an integral part of a child’s learning.

Our major focus is on developing behaviour for learning rather than managing behaviour. The goals of this learning centered behaviour are;

  • To develop children’s self-discipline, self-control and self-esteem.
  • To encourage the children to accept responsibility for their behavioural choices.
  • To develop children’s understandings of the links between behaviour and learning.
  • To promote honesty, fairness, trust, respect, tolerance and cooperation.
  • To promote a safe environment that is conducive to learning.
  • To promote the well-being of the whole community including parents, students and staff.
