At the heart of the educational program of learning and experience at Kingsley Park Primary School is the happiness and safety of the children in their activities.
Our Wellbeing and Child Safety Policies cater for the emotional, social and physical wellbeing of each child.
We strive to produce socially acceptable behaviour that respects the rights of others and encourages the individual to accept responsibility for and logical consequences of their actions.
Wellbeing is based upon the values of co-operation, self-worth, mutual respect and shared responsibilities. The exercise of self control and discipline will establish a co-operative system in which each child’s self-esteem is nurtured.
Co-operation and liaison between parents and teachers will cultivate an atmosphere in which desirable models of behaviour can be developed and practised.
Communication between home and school reinforces and encourages our children to develop desirable social attitudes, enabling them to cope at work and play.
Our school should be orderly, safe and organised, recognising and respecting the individual within the system.
To implement this policy, a code of conduct (responsibility of School Council) that sets the expectation of self discipline and encourages co-operation and respect for others, has been developed. Each child is expected to function amicably and fruitfully within this framework.
