Home / Our Schools / Student Wellbeing / Student Behaviour Expectations
KingsWay School’s behavior statements establish an expectation for behavior in teaching and non-teaching spaces. Agreed school-wide behavior expectations ensure everyone knows and understands what makes our environment safe and secure for all people. Clarity and consistency of expectations encourage everyone to reflect and monitor their thoughts and actions. Faith-centered expectations reinforce our core values and supports biblical principles of training and growing in righteousness. Our expectations of behavior inform responses and actions and provide a consistent, positive message about the way we do things at KingsWay.
There are four essential behaviors all people are expected to live out at KingsWay School.
“Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget” (Proverbs 4:5)
“Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.” (Galatians 6:4-5)
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)
These expectations are girded by scripture, and for believers, enabled by the support of the Holy Spirit.
Each expected behaviour manifests in unique ways in different areas of the school. For example, being teachable on the sports field looks different than in the classroom. Being courageous in learning may look different to being courageous in the playground. Expectations are explicitly taught, intentionally monitored and used to identify positive behaviours in action. They are used to hold others to account and as a framework for understanding restoration of relationship and natural justice.
The Restorative Practice Model is used throughout KingsWay School to resolve all conflict whether it be between adults or students. Restorative Practice is an intentional strategy aimed at restoring and rebuilding relationships damaged through any conflict. This practice can be used in diverse contexts including education, counselling and social work
We believe that restorative practice inspires students towards Christlikeness, personal responsibility, reconciling relationships, emotional well-being and building community.
Restorative practice is adopted in all student management situations. A variety of scaffolds may be put in place to support students in their attempts to restore relationships and build community. In addition, serious events are managed by members of the pastoral care team dependent on whether it be in the Junior, Middle or Senior School context, including Deans, HOLA’s, Assistant Heads of School, and in the most serious cases an Associate Principal.
The Restorative Practise approach in Primary is introduced to the students through the Young Peace Maker Program which teaches the students how to resolve personal conflicts in a biblically faithful manner and how to enjoy the freedom of restored relationships.
Discipling our young people in their decision making is an important part of supporting our Middle School students. We believe that relationship is at the heart of everything we do and we, therefore, have a Restorative Practice discipline system. The biblical foundation for this is that God restores and redeems. The nature, regularity and impact of student’s behaviours will ascertain as to who works with the student. It could be their Homeroom teacher, the Head of Learning for their year level or a Dean from the Wellbeing Team.
Our Wellbeing Team is led by Yvonne Neville, Assistant Head of Middle School. This team of teachers has the dual role of working with students due to choices they have made and also in leading a mentoring programme for our young people.
In any event, the Homeroom teacher is the first point of contact should parents have any concerns.
