Good Standing Policy
At Swan View Primary School our vision is to create an environment in which students are engaged in the joy of learning and have the courage to reach their full potential. Everybody has the opportunity to redeem themselves.
Is to provide an environment which engages and nurtures the learner so that every student and staff member can be their best possible self.
In 2018, a directive was published by the Minister for Education on school violence, ‘Let’s make a stand together’. This required schools to take action with students who fight or engage in other aggressive, violent actions. All schools are required to suspend/ exclude students who fight or who make intentional physical contact with other students or staff and thus disrupt the good order of the school.
The development of a Good Standing Policy is a mandatory requirement for all public schools in response to the increasing incidents of violence in schools. This policy adheres to the Department of Education (WA) 2018 directive issued under section 232 of the School Education Act 1999 by the Director General.
At Swan View Primary School, we strive to create a safe and caring learning environment. Good Standing emphasises the importance of students taking responsibility for negative choices made. Good standing supports the Behaviour Management Policy.
