Behaviour management

Woree State High School is a learning and teaching environment. Behaviour management allows opportunity for valuable social learning as well as maximising the success of academic education programs.

Woree State High School’s Responsible Behaviour Plan outlines our system for facilitating positive behaviours, preventing problem behaviour and responding to unacceptable behaviours. Through our school plan, shared expectations for student behaviour are plain to everyone. These plain expectations help create and maintain a positive and productive learning and teaching environment. All school community members have clear, consistent expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.

Our school community has identified the following school community code of behaviour “The Woree Four” to teach and promote our high standards of responsible behaviour:

• Respect

• Effort

• Safety

• Self Responsibility

Our "Woree Four” has been agreed upon and endorsed by all staff and by our school P&C. It is aligned with the values, principles and expected standards outlined in Education Queensland’s Code of School Behaviour. 

Consequences for unacceptable behaviour

Woree State High School makes systematic efforts to prevent problem student behaviour by teaching and reinforcing expected behaviours on an ongoing basis.  When unacceptable behaviour occurs, students experience predictable consequences. Our school seeks to ensure that responses to unacceptable behaviour are consistent and proportionate to the nature of the behaviour.

Individual circumstances of students are considered when determining behaviour support or applying consequences for inappropriate behaviour at Woree State High School.

Positive reinforcement

Students at Woree State High School are also supported through positive reinforcement and a system of universal, targeted, and intensive behaviour supports.
