Positive Behaviour for Learning

Positive Behaviour for Learning

During school hours, the God given parental responsibility for teaching and discipling children is shared with home and teachers in a co-operative relationship.

Our school seeks to guide our pupils Biblically by knowing the difference between good and bad choices by providing sound teaching and fair, firm behaviour management in an atmosphere of positive motivation, encouragement and modeling.

Westminster Christian School has established three school values from our Biblical World View; Respect, Resilience and Responsibility. Our expectations for behaviour stem from these three values surrounded by the Fruits of the Spirit; Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Faithfulness, Goodness, Gentleness and Self-Control.

In 2022, we introduced Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) and are in the process of implementing this throughout our school.

Our Purpose Statement is as follows:

Westminster Christian School, through the Spirit of God, will create a positive environment that inspires everyone to love God, love others and love learning. By consistently applying our school values, we are committed to improving social, cultural and academic outcomes for all. We will nurture our God-given abilities and talents in a responsible and respectful way in service to the school and wider community.

Through consultation with staff, whanau and students, the PB4L Team collated our Behaviour Matrix below:

In 2023, we reviewed our Behaviour Flowchart and created the following visual for our students and staff to refer to. This flowchart is visible in every area of our school:
