Maleny State School's Discipline Audit has been completed and the result was great. The school will continue investigate the data received and work towards achieving outstanding in all areas.
General Information on the Audit Process
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. 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 will visit the school to collect a range of data and information about schoolwide, programs and procedures in the area of discipline. Interviews will also be conducted with staff, students and parents to gather a range of perspectives on school strategies and practices in relation to behavior management. The Discipline Audit will usually take one to two days, depending on the school’s context and size. The school will receive the auditor’s report within 15 days and key findings will be discussed with the principal, the school’s leadership team and school staff.
The report’s Executive Summary and 5 page Profile will be made available to parentsand caregivers on the school’s web site. The principal will work with the school community to include any recommendations in the school’s forward planning aroundstrengthening discipline.
