Eimeo Road State School has a central core value, 'Consider Others', which is supported by three additional supplementary values, Safety, Respect and Responsibility.
Safety - contribute to the provision of a safe environment that allows for the protection and support of students against bullying, harassment and violence.
Respect - demonstrate positive feelings/actions/esteem towards self, others and the environment.
Responsibility - be accountable for your actions/learning, resolve differences in constructive, non-violent ways, contribute to society and civic life and take care of the environment.
These values have been used in the development of this Student Code of Conduct, with the aim of helping shape and build the skills of all our students to be confident, self disciplined and kind young people. Our school staff believe that communication and positive connections with other people are the most valuable skills our communities need now and in the future.
Eimeo Road State School staff take an educative approach to discipline, that behaviour can be taught and that mistakes are opportunities for everyone to learn. Our Student Code of Conduct provides an overview of the school's local policies on use of mobile phones and other technology, removal of student property and the approach to preventing and addressing incidents of bullying. It also details the steps school staff take to educate students about these policies and how students are explicitly taught the expected behaviours. Finally, it details the consequences that may apply when students breach the expected standards of behaviour, including the use of suspension or exclusion.
