LEARNING COMMUNITIES PROGRAM

LEARNING COMMUNITIES PROGRAM

The Learning Communities Program at Scoresby PS aims to build a happy and effective learning community in each classroom from the commencement of the school year. This involves a concentrated program which initially runs for 2 weeks and is referred to throughout the school year to reinforce its elements.

The Learning Communities Program encompasses our school values and all the programs that focus on student wellbeing at Scoresby PS. It involves building positive relationships within the classroom and school wide. Clear goals, processes and expectations are agreed, which enable students to embrace challenges in an environment that feels safe, supportive and secure.

RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS

RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS

Scoresby Primary has recently trained as a lead school in The Respectful Relationships Program, which came about as a result of the Victorian Inquiry into Family Violence.

The Respectful Relationships Program involves a whole school approach and requires the support and involvement of students, parents, families and staff

Scoresby students take part in teaching and learning that focuses on the following topics: Emotional Literacy, Personal Strengths, Positive Coping, Problem Solving, Stress management, Help Seeking, Gender and Identity, and Positive Gender Relationships

It is the aim of Scoresby PS that each student leaves with a solid understanding of what a respectful relationship looks and feels like. We also aim for students to understand their rights and responsibilities, have recognition and acceptance that everyone is unique and identify the personal strengths that they possess. In addition, it is expected that as part of this program, students develop strategies they can implement to help cope with difficult situations and to know what support is available should it be required.

BETTER BUDDIES PROGRAM

Scoresby Primary school has been a long time supporter of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s Better Buddies Framework. The purpose of the initiative is to create friendly and caring primary school communities where bullying is reduced.

Through Better Buddies, our Foundation and year 6 students buddy up and learn the values: 

Better Buddies enables our Foundation students to feel safe and cared for while our older students feel valued and respected.

PEER MEDIATORS

PEER MEDIATORS

Peer Mediation is a new program that will be introduced to Scoresby Primary School in 2022. Peer Mediation is when students help other students to find a way of solving problems, fights or arguments. The students who are having the problem meet with two trained mediators to say what the problem is for them and how they feel about it. The mediators then help them to pick out what they each need for the problem to be solved. A solution which meets each person’s needs is chosen and an agreement is written down.

It is a voluntary and confidential process bound by specific ground rules. It follows a 6 step formula that assists students to work through immediate problems, take responsibility for generating their own solutions, agree on those that are practical and acceptable to both students and then work at implementing these. In doing so it enables children to develop a basis for future problem solving.

Students take part in a whole day training session learning skills such as being active listeners, ways to solve conflict, communication skills and team work. They also participate in role plays to practise how to mediate a problem.

SCHOOL CHAPLAIN

Scoresby PS has Lyndal Ihle as our School Chaplain and is supported by Taffy who is our therapy dog.

Chaplaincy services aim to support the emotional wellbeing of students by providing pastoral care services and strategies that support the emotional wellbeing of the broader school community. Pastoral care means looking after the wellbeing and personal needs of students, not just their academic needs.

eSMART

eSMART

In eSmart schools, relationships are strong and supportive and learning outcomes are enhanced. Bullying and cyber-bullying are therefore less likely to thrive. 

An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls.

BULLYING-PREVENTION

Bullying is when someone deliberately upsets or hurts another person more than once. If you see someone being bullied, you have to help. How can you help?

Scoresby Primary School has a Bullying Prevention Policy in place which you can access from our Policies page.
