Behaviour management

About Behaviour at Goondiwindi State Primary School, we believe:

Staff and students at Goondiwindi State Primary School have the right to work to their potential, free from disruption, abuse or threat in a safe and supportive environment. To enable this productive learning to occur, we believe different learning styles and abilities must be catered for and appropriate behaviours need to be taught, modelled, encouraged and developed.


As a staff we believe that Positive Behaviour for Learning is the most appropriate approach to use with students.  We have agreed to collaborate to consistently use this non-aversive approach at the school.  We know that no single strategy will achieve positive outcomes for all students and, as a result, we have adopted this multi-element approach.  We believe that our students respond best to positive reinforcement.  Positive behaviours are established through teaching new social skills in context while responding effectively to problematic behaviours. 


Self-discipline can be learned, but only when all stakeholders are involved in accepting joint responsibility and encouraging students to be accountable for their behaviour.  Our school alone cannot effectively discipline without the support of parents and the wider community.  With the common goal of strengthening relationships and encouraging a socially responsible attitude, in our students, we can have a safe and supportive environment for the entire school community.
