Our Behaviour Philosophy
Our Behavior Philosophy is linked to how students effectively learn.
Research suggests that the adolescent years are a time of significant brain development, second only to the first three years of life. So it is important that we support students in an environment that caters for them at this stage in their life and in response to the current research trends.
Taking this into consideration, Rāroa Normal Intermediate behaviour management is based around the following:
If the behaviour is learnt, then it is a skill that needs to be taught.
In our decisions and actions, we will strive to develop the dispositions to ASPIRE across our community.
To achieve this a set of principles were created to fit under this philosophy. The principles provide a framework to not only address behavioural issues but, create an environment where students can develop behaviours which are lifelong and apply to all area of life. These principles were developed through community consultation
