Behaviour Management

Frankland River Primary School’s behaviour management policy aims to:

  • To provide a happy, positive learning environment.
  • To help students reach their full potential.
  • To provide a physically and emotionally safe environment.
  • To encourage students to accept responsibility for their own behaviour – choose the behaviour –choose the consequence.
  • To ensure rules are applied consistently, fairly, consequentially and reviewed
  • To enable teachers to teach in a purposeful and non-disruptive environment.
  • Establish procedures so that conflicts can be resolved in a positive non-violent

Our three BEHAVIOUR EXPECTATIONS are: Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Resilient.

Students demonstrating the expectations of Responsibility, Respect and Resilience may receive faction tokens (for either Red or White Faction). These tokens contribute to our termly faction competition. Each term, the faction with the largest number of tokens will receive a reward. This will be advised through the school newsletter.


School Mascot: Frankie the Numbat

Frankland River Primary School has a mascot which was designed in conjunction with the students in 2019. Our school mascot is Frankie the Numbat. Frankie the Numbat provides a visual reminder for children to make appropriate choices when resolving small problems.

Students will be explicitly taught and encouraged to use the following strategies to resolve small problems.

  • Go to another game
  • Share and take turns
  • Talk it out
  • Wait and cool off
  • Make a deal
  • Apologise
  • Tell them to stop
  • Ignore it
  • Walk away

These behaviours will be displayed for the students and staff to refer to. It is important that students are equipped with strategies to resolve small problems as this helps to build a culture of resiliency.
