Longreach State High School is a learning and teaching environment. Behaviour management allows opportunity for valuable social learning as well as maximising the success of academic education programs.
Longreach State High School uses Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) as the multi-tiered system of support for discipline in the school.
At Longreach SHS we are all responsible for developing a safe, respectful and inclusive community to support our quality learning environment.
The Longreach State High School's Student Code of Conduct sets out the responsibilities and processes used in our school to promote a productive, effective whole school approach to discipline.
The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to facilitate high standards of behaviour from all in the school community, ensuring learning and teaching in our school is prioritised, where all students are able to feel safe and experience success and staff enjoy a safe workplace.
Consequences for unacceptable behaviour
Longreach State High School makes systematic efforts to prevent problem student behaviour by teaching and reinforcing expected behaviours on an ongoing basis. When unacceptable behaviour occurs, students experience predictable consequences. Our school seeks to ensure that responses to unacceptable behaviour are consistent and proportionate to the nature of the behaviour.
Individual circumstances of students are considered when determining behaviour support or applying consequences for inappropriate behaviour at Longreach State High School.
Students at Longreach State High School are also supported through positive reinforcement and a system of universal, targeted, and intensive behaviour supports.
