STUDENT SERVICES & SUPPORT
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L)
The school runs the PB4L programme to encourage and promote positive behaviour. Should children exhibit inappropriate behaviour, there are set procedures and consequences which are followed. These are set out on a behaviour chart written in collaboration with staff and parents.
We have been running this programme for 3 years and our school has now achieved Tier 2 status in the programme, achieving 100% over a three year period at Tier 1
Peer Mediation is a system in which the children are encouraged to help each other talk together and work through difficulties in a positive manner. Trained children take turns at helping others in the playground daily.
Peer Support for New Children
Special attention is given to new entrants and other children who have joined the school to ensure their wellbeing is taken care of and they are able to participate fully in school activities.
Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour – RTLB
Children needing extra help with learning and behaviour may be referred to an RTLB teacher. Parents will be notified if a referral is going to be made.
Children are able to borrow books during class allocated library time or at lunchtime with the help of trained library monitors. Intermediate children have the opportunity to train and work in the library as monitors. The issue and return system is fully computerised and books are issued for 3 weeks.
Reports to Parents/Caregivers
Teachers report to parents regularly throughout the year. There are at least two meetings with parents during the year, and two formal school reports.
If there is any matter regarding your child’s progress you wish to discuss please arrange a time with the teacher concerned.
After School Care
Although the school does not run an after-school care programme, some of our students attend ECAT (East Care After Three). Each day at 3pm, a representative from the ECAT is on hand to pick up and drive students to the ECAT headquarters, where parents can pick up their son/daughter at their address: Miramar Community Centre, 27 Chelsea Street, Miramar. Call 021 041 6561.
Children will attend the new ’Bee Healthy Regional Dental Service Hub at Miramar Central School at no charge, once a year. If parents/caregiver have concerns about their child’s teeth or a child has dental pain, an appointment can be arranged by calling 0800 825 583
