Isn't it easier just to count down to the end of term and hope it all
goes away in the holidays ? NO.
Let's be proactive and nip things in the bud. So....what can we do ?
This is the perfect time to revisit our school values and behavioural guidelines
with all learners and families.
It is a chance to meet with learners and parents about real time concerns
that might need more time than just the end of term parent meetings.
Be explicit and work towards solutions collaboratively.
These are our school values and guidelines:
3 key ways to be proactive and nip things "in the bud":
1. Be transparent. Share links to this information in the weekly emails to
parents and on the school news blog. Ask parents to have conversations
with their children around the guidelines.
2. Ask staff to link certificates and awards to school values and guidelines.
3. Capture photos of the values in action and create videos with
student leadership groups to reinforce these messages.
It's important to understand that these behaviours arise naturally
towards the end of a term at all schools. They can be positively actioned
when we focus on building quality learning relationships as a whole
school community together.
Be proactive and nip things "in the bud".
What are you doing at your school to ensure a stressfree and
successful end to the term for all ?
