Eatons Hill State School is committed to quality learning in a good school where children feel safe and enjoy coming to learn. Our Student Code of Conduct is based on the following beliefs:
Makes choices about how he/she acts and treats others;
Is responsible for his/her behaviour and the choice he/she makes;
Should accept the consequences of his/her actions and understand the importance of making amends;
Can choose to change his/her behaviour.
High expectations for respectful, responsible and safe behaviour and a focus on positive relationships underpin an effective teaching and learning environment in which all children can achieve and learn successfully. The school’s Student Code of Conduct clearly articulates standards and expectations for student behaviour, outlines a framework of positive behaviour strategies across the school and identifies consequences for inappropriate behaviours. Positive behaviours are reinforced through school values and proactive education and a range of school and classroom incentives, recognition and rewards.
Central to our plan are three simple school rules: Be responsible; Be respectful; Be safe, and eight key virtues; Respect, Responsibility, Courage and Compassion. During the year, there is a school fortnightly focus on each virtue and students are recognised with certificates for demonstrating aspects of good character.
At the enrolment interview, the key aspects of the EHSS Student Code of Conduct will be shared with parents and attending students.
