Effective schools are engaging schools - student engagement policy guidelines

Schools Australia Victoria

Student wellbeing and student learning outcomes are inextricably linked as students can only reach their full educational potential when they are happy, healthy and safe, and when there is a positive school culture to engage and support them in their learning.
The Effective Schools are Engaging Schools: Student Engagement Policy Guidelines support the rights and articulates the expectations of every member of the school community to engage in and promote a safe and inclusive educational environment. All Victorian government schools are required to develop a Student Engagement Policy and this requirement will be listed on the School Compliance Checklist from 2010. The policy should cover the following components:
school profile statement
whole-school prevention statement
rights and responsibilities
shared expectations
principals, teachers and student support staff
school actions/consequences.
