Our aim is to create and maintain a
school environment that is inclusive and empowering that values the positive contributions of students and creates a sense of belonging and connectedness that is conducive to positive behaviours and effective engagement in learning.
School leaders set the tone by commending ideas and taking the time to listen and appreciate the issues, work to provide feedback in order to help develop solutions. I asked members of the student Leadership to consider the school rules and behaviours and to address the school assembly. Emily, Sarah, Josh and Finn then scripted and created a video to be shared on the schools website.

Our School Strategic Plan (also on the IPS Website) outlines the key goals for student engagement and wellbeing. These are:
• All students to be engaged, connected and make positive contributions to the development of the whole school community.
• All students to be resilient and display behaviours and attitudes that reflect the school values.
• Ensuring students have the tools, skills and modelling to enable them to develop positive and self-regulating behaviours
Research shows that intervening early with targeted and individual strategies is key to preventing disengagement and addressing challenging behaviours before they escalate.
Part of our strategy is to empower students through approaches that provide them with a greater voice in decisions that affect their school experience.
