The Positive Behaviour Structures in place at St Joseph's School are constantly being reviewed to ensure we meet the diverse needs of students. Our approach is always focused on the inherent dignity and well-being of each student.
Led by the Mission Team, the school staff are reviewing ways in which interactions between individuals at St Joseph's model Christ-like behaviours as expressed in the Gospels. Throughout this review, a big focus will be on what happens when relationships break down and what restorative practices are used to resolve conflict.
The team will be facilitating the discussion factoring in well-being and problem-solving strategies. The aim of these strategies is to restore positive relationships by providing a whole school environment which encourages re-integration through supportive, relational school practices.
We look forward to keeping you up-to-date with the changes. We give high priority to building and maintaining positive and caring relationships between staff, students and parents.
