Social Skills/Growth Mindset:
We are a School Wide Positive Behaviour School that focuses on supporting the social, emotional and academic learning of all students. The school has developed a whole school social skills program in order to teach the skills necessary to function successfully in a school and indeed, in later life. It focuses on respect, rights and responsibilities. There is a team, including staff and a parent rep, who monitor behaviour data to see if there are areas or individual children we need to focus on. There have been some fantastic changes over the last year in raising the expectations of appropriate behaviour and ways of getting along. The students love the rewards focus and special activities. Parents are important partners in ensuring the students have these social skills and we work closely with families where a student may be having some difficulties. We explicitly teach social skills and foster students to develop a growth mindset.
