Yard Behaviour


  1. The yard is a safe and enjoyable place in which students can play.
  2. Children who place the safety and enjoyment of yard play at risk, receive consistent, logical consequences.
  3. All teachers have ensured that students know about school rules and are helped to follow them.
  4. A play roster ensures equity of yard and playground equipment usage.


  1. Students have a right to a safe, secure, orderly learning and playing environment:
    • Develop and model positive relationships.
    • Maintain a safe and orderly school environment.

  2. Students learn best when they experience success:
    • Foster the development of a positive self-concept.
    • Provide opportunities for students to succeed.
    • Have realistic expectations.
    • Recognise effort as well as results.
    • Provide opportunities to meet individual needs (eg girls, disabled, different cultures, NESB students, etc.)

  3. Students are responsible for their own behaviour:
    • Inform students that the choice of responsible and irresponsible behaviour is their own.
    • Provide opportunities for students to develop and apply skills in problem-solving, negotiating, decision-making and leadership through both planned and unplanned learning experiences at school.
    • Expect students to accept the consequences for their behaviour choices.

  4. All behaviours (appropriate and inappropriate) have consequences:
    • Provide opportunities for students to take part in determining the consequences for their behaviours.
    • Recognise and reward responsible behaviours.
    • Development and support deterrents for irresponsible behaviour.
    • Support and guide students at all times regarding behaviour.

  5. Teachers, students and parents share the responsibility for the management of students’ behaviour:
    • Use collaborative decision-making process
    • Develop and promote effective communication.
    • Work together in a mutually supportive way
    • Engage outside agencies when necessary
    • Regularly monitor and review student behaviour management policy and procedures.
