At Newington Primary School, we work to provide a consistent and positive approach to student behaviour, aiming to foster the development of personal responsibility and self-discipline.

We are committed to the following strategies:

  • Implementing a whole school social and emotional learning program
  • Encouraging awareness, understanding and respect of school rules
  • Requiring children to accept responsibility for their own actions
  • Giving positive reinforcement to improve self-esteem
  • Publicly acknowledging student achievement
  • Encouraging friendships, and
  • Providing appropriate supervision in the school grounds.
