Year 7, 8 & 9 Good Standing Policy
At Lesmurdie Senior High School we believe that it is essential to clearly state the standard of performance necessary for students to succeed at school and be well placed to enter post-school destinations of their choice. Teachers will communicate the standards required by providing:
The Good Standing Policy establishes minimum standards and expectations in relation to Commitment, Academic Performance and Attendance. Student achievement of the standards will be either Advanced, Good or Conditional.
Students who achieve Advanced Standing in a semester and year will receive an Advanced Standing pin and Certificate at a whole school assembly.
All students will be given the opportunity to engage in a relevant and meaningful curriculum. Students are responsible for giving themselves every opportunity to achieve to their full potential. Student commitment can be demonstrated through the attitude, behaviour and effort attributes on the semester report which reflect:
2.2 Academic Performance
All students will be provided with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes to enable them to achieve to the best of their ability.
There is a very strong connection between the academic performance of students, their attendance and subsequent participation in the learning program. Absence is likely to impact on a student’s ability to understand the material covered and to successfully complete the assessment program to the best of their ability.
In calculating the standings, an absence will not count if it is for medical reasons or state/national sport representation.
Students will achieve one of three standings;
3.1 Advanced Standing – Academic
Students are deemed to have excelled in relation to the Academic standard when they have achieved the following levels of performance in a semester:
3.2 Advanced Standing – Commitment
Students are deemed to have excelled in relation to the Commitment standard when they have achieved the following levels of performance in a semester:
3.3 Good Standing
On enrolment, all students commence on ‘Good Standing’. Students who are deemed to have maintained Good Standing in a semester will have achieved the following levels of performance in relation to the standards:
3.4 Conditional Standing
Students are deemed to have performed below an acceptable level in relation to the standards when they have exhibited one or both of the following levels of performance in a semester:
In this circumstance, Lesmurdie Senior High School will undertake a number of intervention strategies designed to support improvement to an acceptable level. These interventions may include a meeting with the student, their parents and a school delegate to develop an individual improvement plan.
Students on Conditional Standing status may lose the privilege to attend extra and co-curricular events.
