School wide positive behaviour support
Darling Heights 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.
The Responsible Behaviour Plan (PDF, 1648 KB) for students is designed to facilitate 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 Darling Heights State School our aim is to provide a quality education for all students according to their individual needs in a secure, friendly and challenging environment with the co-operation of an informed and supportive school community. Our current educational philosophy emphasises a safe school environment, where positive approaches to managing student behaviour, and the balancing of individual students and whole class school needs are recognised.
