Behaviour Management

The Wynnum West State School Positive Behaviour Program (PBP) is a school-wide initiative committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment where students have an opportunity to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing.
Our Positive Behaviour Program is based on the following core principles:
1) to facilitate high standards of behaviour so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community and the wider community.
2) to explicitly teach students the expectations we have of them as members of the school and the wider community.
3) to make students aware that their behaviour is an individual choice that has rewards and consequences associated with it. 

We have established four school rules that are aligned with the values, principles and expected standards outlined in Education Queensland’s Code of School Behaviour.
They are:
Be Respectful
Be Responsible
Be Safe
Be a Learner
WALT the Wynnum West Water Dragon is our school behaviour representative. “WALT” is an acronym for our school philosophy “We Are Learning Today”. Whilst the use of a water dragon relates to the wildlife of the Wynnum-Manly Area, WALT is the embodiment of our behavioural and academic expectations for students.
Our School Creed encompasses the goals and expectations of our Positive Behaviour Program and is a consistent reminder to students of these goals and expectations as well as our Four School Rules. Our Creed states:
We are the Wynnum West Water Dragons. Water Dragons are Safe, Responsible, Respectful learners. Everyday counts. Every Dragon can be a High Achiever.
Students can earn WALT  awards for weekly prizes. Students can be given orange slips for minor incidents and red slips for major incidents. Students can participate in our gold class days at the end of every term if they have received no red slips.
