WHOLE SCHOOL EXPECTATIONS

Collie Senior High School is committed to ensuring that all members of the school community are able to learn effectively in a safe, secure, orderly and welcoming environment. We have adopted a Positive Behaviour Support system across the school to provide a clear framework for staff and students to identify what is expected within the Collie Senior High School community. There are four main expectations which form the Collie ARCH; these are Aspiration, Respect, Commitment and Honesty. The ARCH forms the foundation of the Collie Senior High School ethos of “We Strive” and provides the means for reinforcing good behaviour and redirecting poor behaviour can be successfully achieved. 

 

As a school community, we believe that home and school must share the responsibility for students to learn and demonstrate appropriate behaviour. By working together, we can provide more meaningful opportunities for students to behave responsibly and to respect themselves and others. Principles of procedural fairness, equity, cultural sensitivity and inclusivity underpin all decisions made. A student’s Good Standing is reinstated after the impacted time period.

 

GOOD STANDING POLICY

All students have their Good Standing, however throughout the year a number of extra-curricular events are held. They have the opportunity to attend these events unless they have lost their Good Standing privilege. These events include:

Event

Lead in Period

Interschool Sporting Events

4 School Weeks

Reward Days

4 School Weeks

Incursions/Excursions

4 School Weeks

Any Extra Curricular School Event

4 School Weeks

School Ball

6 School Weeks

Country Week

1 Term

School Tours ie. ANZAC

From tour selection until event.

For each event, there will be a defined lead-in period clearly outlined to students. During this lead-in period, students will lose the privilege of participating in the event if they:

are suspended from school;

  • fail to attend school without an explanation. Notes must be up to date;
  • are repeatedly late for school;
  • continually fail to be in school uniform; or
  • are withdrawn from a Learning Area for a week or more.

             Special Conditions

If suspended, students are ineligible for Semester super draws

  • If attending Country Week or Workplace Learning during Country Week, all course work must be up to date and signed off by the class teacher

The final decision is with the Principal.

The above criteria for loss of privileges apply for each event. Particular events may also have additional criteria pertaining to them. Students will be advised of these at the commencement of the lead in period.
