At Ounsdale we have high expectations of all students’ conduct and behaviour both in and out of lessons and details of positive and negative behaviours are recorded on ‘WISE’. All students are expected to meet our expectations. Those students who exceed these expectations are rewarded whilst those who fail to meet our expectations are sanctioned.

IN lessons we refer to our expectations as the O6

Students should:

O1.     arrive on time, in the correct uniform, with all equipment needed for your lesson.

(min. planner, pen, pencil, ruler, sci calculator, reading book, exercise book & homework)

O2.     enter calmly, sit in their allocated seat, place their planner and equipment on their desk and
focus on the first task.

O3.     follow and respect their teacher’s instructions – politely, at once, without fuss.

O4.     stay on task, try their best and do not disturb the learning of others.

O5.     respect the views and contributions of others, using appropriate language at all time.

O6.     pack away when told to do so and wait to be dismissed.
