School Wide Positive Behaviour Supports (SWPBS)

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a school-wide framework for teaching, modelling, and reinforcing appropriate and positive behaviours. Learning and behaviour expectations are clearly defined in each classroom and are aligned to our school values of RESPECT, INTEGRITY, PERSISTENCE and WELLBEING. The purpose of PBIS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behaviour is the norm. SWPBS operates on the premise that the same way we teach literacy and numeracy, we also teach how to behave appropriately across different settings.

Positive behaviours are promoted and acknowledged, using recognition and reward systems, with an aim of preventing problem behaviours before they arise. A consistent approach and language is adopted school-wide.

Our school matrix is the expected behaviours template that all staff and students were involved in developing and sets the baseline for behaviour in the school. It assists both staff and students as a reference point to remind us of what we committed to in terms of behaviour and as a re-focusing tool to get us back on track when we lose our focus.
