I now have the final report from our recent Discipline Audit and I must say we did even better than I previously reported to you. You will be able to find a copy of the 5 page profile, executive summary and parent fact sheet on our school homepage. You may recall in the media about the Curriculum, Teaching and Learning (CT&L) audits that schools operating in “medium” were regarded as good solid schools, those operating in “high” are great schools and those operating in “outstanding” are exemplar schools of which are only a few. The discipline audit is broken up into 5 areas, Principal Leadership, Parent & Community Engagement, Data Informed Decision Making, Clear Consistent Expectations for Behaviour and Explicit Teaching of Appropriate Behaviour to all Children. In regards to Principal Leadership we scored mostly in “high” with some minor “mediums”. For Parent and Community Engagement we had 3 areas in “medium and 2 in “high. For Data Informed Decision Making we sored totally in “high”. For Clear Consistent Expectations for Behaviour we had all but one area in “high” and that one area was “medium”. For Explicit Teaching of Appropriate Behaviour to all Children 2 of the areas were “high” and 1 “medium. So overall most of our Discipline Audit scored “high”, which is a fantastic achievement given our first CT&L audit was all “lows” with only 1 “medium”.
What can you do to help at home?
Firstly, celebrate our great improvement as a school. Without your support we would not have been able to achieve this. Take the time to look at the various parts of the Discipline Audit on our homepage and think about what you can do to help us improve this even further. When we review our Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students (RBPS), which was one of the recommendations, take the time to have your say.
