Positive Environment

Each class will set up a positive environment with class values, rules and acknowledgements aligned to our school values and motto.


  • In the mornings, students should go directly to the central courtyard until dismissed by the duty teacher

  • Students eat only in the central courtyard and remain seated at recess and lunch time until dismissed

  • We have a 'no hat, no play' policy

  • Bicycles, scooters and skateboards are to be walked inside school grounds


A set of understandings and behaviours, based on our Core Values is negotiated within the first two weeks of each school year in every classroom. At Swanbourne Primary School we have a clear set of meaningful consequences for individuals whose behaviour does not reflect the school’s core values, so that they are encouraged to recognise and respect the rights of others. We apply a restorative approach and a focus on reflection, reconciliation and respect.


  • Reminder of core values
