Lakes Grammar is developing a behaviour framework known as Positive Behaviour Support or Positive Behaviour for Learning. This provides a school-wide common language and understanding of our expectations for appropriate behaviour at school. Staff at Lakes Grammar have chosen the following three broad expectations:
Students are explicitly taught and have modelled what these expectations mean for their behaviour in the classroom, the playground and other key areas of the school.
Lakes Grammar employ Registered Psychologists as School Counsellors for each Campus. Ms Hayley Turner is available for Junior School students and Mrs Amanda Wishart is available for Senior School students. Both assist teachers in the development of Individual Education Plans for students with special needs.
