Discipline Audit

18/10/2013
As part of an initiative to strengthen discipline in Queensland State schools, Discipline Audits will be conducted in every Queensland state school by November 2014.  Brisbane Central State School’s Discipline Audit was conducted on Wednesday October 9. The purpose of the Discipline Audits is to provide quality feedback on how the school is ensuring a safe, supportive and disciplined learning environment and to inform school behaviour management planning processes.
During the audit, an independent, experienced school principal visited  the school to collect a range of data and information about school-wide, programs and procedures in the area of discipline. Interviews were  conducted with staff, students and parents to gather a range of perspectives on school strategies and practices in relation to behaviour management. The school will receive the auditor’s report within  the next 15 days.  Key findings from the audit have already been  discussed with the school’s leadership team and school staff.
Initial feedback from the auditor was very positive, with the school commended for the  small number of positively stated school-wide expectations and appropriate behaviours that are clearly defined and embedded in practice. The auditor also recognised that these expectations are highly visible throughout the school environment and are continually communicated in school documentation, newsletters, meetings, assemblies  and are evident in the behaviour of the students. 
The report’s Executive Summary and 5 page Profile will be made available to parents and caregivers on the school’s web site. I look forward to sharing this with you when made available.
