School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support Program (SWPBS) is an evidence-based framework for Victorian government schools for preventing and responding to student behaviour.
School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support is a program for promoting and explicitly teaching appropriate and positive behaviours. Teaching, modelling and reinforcing positive social behaviour is an important part of a student’s educational experience. Teaching behavioural expectations and acknowledging students for meeting them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehaviour to occur before responding.
Instead of using many different behaviour management strategies in each class, a consistent system of expectations for all students within our school will be implemented in all areas including classrooms, specialist subjects and other settings such as in the playgrounds and toilets.
The statements are based on our school values of Respect, Learning, Confidence and Community.
We believe that by helping students practise good behaviour, we will build a school community where all students have an environment where they can succeed and grow.
We acknowledge good behaviour through school-wide reward systems, classroom reward systems, and certificates/awards at whole-school assemblies.
