Frankston Heights Primary School is a Lead “Respectful Relationships” school and encourages the development of positive interpersonal relationships throughout the school community.

In our partnership with Adam Voigt, founder of “Real Schools” your child will benefit from being involved in a Restorative School Community, promoting strong positive relationships through an inclusive, ‘anti-bullying’ culture.

Our child safety policy underpins our school approach to student management and guides our practices to ensure all children feel safe in our welcoming environment.

Our school is committed to implementing Restorative Practice as an integral approach to managing student conflict and providing an inclusive and emotionally safe culture.

Our daily lessons teach students to use positive and respectful approaches to solving minor conflict.

By taking responsibility for their actions, students learn to navigate conversations with their peers, learn how to problem solve, restore and build stronger relationships with their friends. This forges a strong foundation for the basis of a positive school culture.

Student voice is an integral part of our education programs at Frankston Heights.

This may occur through classroom meetings, individual conferences, student surveys and our Student Leadership Program. We acknowledge that students have unique perspectives on learning, teaching, and schooling, and should have the opportunity to actively shape their own education.

Our students actively contribute to decision making processes and are given opportunities to put forward their views, concerns and ideas. Student voice allows children to engage, participate, lead and learn.

Our school is dedicated to the enhancement and development of each child’s social and emotional wellbeing and capabilities.

Social and emotional learning is embedded across the curriculum through an inclusive learning environment covering the school’s values of Respect, Resilience and Responsibility.

The Respectful Relationships Curriculum is taught each week covering areas such as: Emotional Literacy, Personal Strengths, Positive Coping, Problem Solving, Stress Management, Help Seeking and Positive Relations.
