Kedgley Intermediate School recognises that students learn best in a safe and supportive learning environment. To do this we encourage, both with students and staff, high expectations and consistency with behaviour expectations. We believe students and staff need to be responsible for their own actions and show respect for others, the property of others and for the environment.
As we are a POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR FOR LEARNING School we believe that:
a. positive acknowledgement for adherence to Expectations and routines happens more frequently than corrective comment for inappopriate behaviour.

We believe that students should have many opportunities to gain rewards given in recognition for effort, achivement and service.

Student voice is encouraged on a regular basis to maintain student interest.
