At St Mark’s we have 3 school rules/expectations, these are :
I am a Learner
I am Respectful
I am Safe
These 3 expectations are what all students at St Mark’s should try to do at all times. We have them to help make St Mark’s a positive and safe place where everyone can enhance their learning.
We have developed a series of behavioural expectations that everyone should demonstrate in the different areas of the school, which are outlined in a behaviour matrix. Each of the different areas have a behaviour matrix which is specific for that area. They following areas have behaviour matrices:
· Learning Areas
· Lining up After Snack and Lunch
· Moving Around the School
· Whole School Gatherings
· Entering and Exiting the School Ground
· Bike Area
Each matrix has been designed with both students and teachers and only consists of positive behaviour expectations. Students can use these matrices to see what sort of behaviour is appropriate for the area they are in. Sometimes when teachers observe students doing the behaviour that is outlined in one of the matrices, that students will receive a token. Once a student has a certain amount of tokens they can trade them for a reward. The rewards range from 5 token rewards to 50 token rewards.
