Supporting student behaviour

The Queensland Department of Education has completed a substantial review of student behaviour procedures. Review of policies and procedures are regularly undertaken as part of the standard cycle to ensure accurate and high quality information is available to all school staff and communities on the management and operation of state schools. 

The revised procedures also enabled the inclusion of a number of recommendations from the 'Review of education for students with disability in Queensland state schools' and the Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce report: Adjust our Settings: A community approach to address cyberbullying among children and young people in Queensland.

The major change emerging from the review is the removal of the 'Safe, supportive and disciplined school environment' procedure. It has been replaced by three distinct procedures:

The Temporary removal of student property by school staff and Refusal to enrol – Risk to safety or wellbeing procedures have also been updated.

The new procedures provide greater clarity in the expectations and responsibilities of principals and state school staff in the support of student behaviour and discipline matters.

Schools will have the full 2020 school year to develop and consult with their community on their new Student Code of Conduct, which replaces the Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students, Code of School Behaviour and Statement of Expectations.

All staff are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the new and revised procedures which will be implemented from 2020.
