The Zones of Regulation
Toodyay DHS is part of the Positive Behaviour in Schools (PBS) program. Staff implement Restorative Practices to restore relationships. Positive behaviour rewards are given to students. The school wide positive behaviour expectations are:
Be Safe; Be a Learner; Be Respectful
Any behaviour modification will be: calm, consistent, brief, immediate and respectful.
We have also implemented The Zones of Regulation across the school (K_10) as part of a whole school approach towards self-regulation.
This approach is designed to help students learn to identify their feelings and emotional reactions and learn strategies to encourage better self-regulation across different situations. A simple colour-coded, four-zone format encourages learning, with optimum learning happening when students are in the Green Zone. Students also learn how to use strategies or tools to stay in a zone or move from one zone to another.
