Clontarf Beach State School recognises that for optimal learning to take place, the school community must provide a safe and supportive environment in which:
· All school community members are valued, their strengths recognised and appreciated;
· Appropriate language and behaviour is identified and modelled by all school community members;
· Opportunities are provided for all school community members to meet their five basic needs (survival, love/belonging, freedom, power and fun/enjoyment).
Our school’s purpose is to work in partnerships with pupils, parents and the wider community to allow individuals or groups to participate effectively in our school and to achieve positive outcomes. Mutual respect is the premise upon which effective relationships are based.
In accordance with Clontarf Beach State School’s policy of inclusion, each student’s situation is taken into consideration and individual student needs and circumstances are of paramount importance.
In close partnership with the school community, through the Parents & Citizens’ Association, and with broad consultation with parents, staff and students via survey distribution and meetings, the following code of conduct, protocols, rights and responsibilities was developed.
· All community members will address each other in a respectful manner at all times
· All community members have the right to feel safe from physical and verbal abuse
· All members have the opportunity to be involved in the decision-making processes of our school
· All members of our school community are responsible for their own conduct
Clontarf Beach students strive to be Clontarf Stars by following the school values of being:
These are modelled by our school mascot, Stellar Star.
