  • Class rules to be visited every week in term one and regularly each term there after.
  • Classroom teachers to introduce new Classroom and Playground Behaviour Management Expectations and processes and revisit every week in term one and each term there after.

Step 1. WARNING- Maintain good tone and send a clear message.

Step 2. Student is moved to another class space, to break the cycle of behaviour. Supervision is to be maintained by the classroom teacher.

Step 3. Student is removed from the classroom until the end of the session. Supervision is to be maintained by support staff.
