We use restorative practices to put things right when children experience an issue at school. We know that children will make mistakes – it is part of learning – and that the child’s mana will remain intact when we deal with errors in judgement. We are passionate about children learning about positive relationships through sound guidance and consistent support.
It is expected that:
Teachers will make contact with home if there are issues that need extra support to help children learn positive behaviour and relationships with others. We strive to have clear expectations, proactive early intervention, and fair consequences so all children feel safe and have the opportunity to learn successful ways to interact socially.
We expect parents and whanau to speak to us quickly if their child has arrived home with a relationship
problem that we need to address and solve.
Code of Conduct
All parents and caregivers of enrolled children at Rotokawa School will be expected to sign our Code of Conduct.
The Code of Conduct is an agreement between home and school about how we will support our children to learn in a safe, supported learning environment.
