Student Culture for Learning

At Magnetic Island State School, all students should have access to the best educational opportunities and outcomes possible. We strive to create a culture of engaging learning that improves wellbeing and achievement, values diversity and responds to student needs and interests. We communicate high expectations and successes to the whole school community through parades, newsletters, school website and social media opportunities.
Magnetic Island State School is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing.
This Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students is designed to facilitate high expectations and 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.
At Magnetic Island State School we believe:
·       Learning is a life-long process;
·       Learning occurs best within a supportive, stimulating and challenging environment which develops self-esteem, fosters a love of learning and recognises students individual needs and abilities; and
·       Quality learning outcomes are enhanced when there is a shared responsibility for behaviour across the school community, which is promoted through clear communication processes.
We use an evidence based, whole school framework at Magnetic Island State School to establish positive behaviours for learning. The first step in facilitating and promoting high standards of positive behaviour is communicating those standards to all students. At Magnetic Island State School we emphasise the importance of directly teaching students the behaviours we want them to demonstrate at school. Communicating behavioural expectations is a form of universal behaviour support - a strategy directed towards all students to encourage high expectations for positive behaviour and schooling success. Staff engage in active supervision at all times which requires focused attention and intentional observation. This constant vigilance helps children to learn safely. This is monitored through classroom observation and behaviour data collection. Further specialised strategies are implemented for students who may require further support and intervention to achieve school success.
