Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence research based approach that places a major focus on prevention of negative behaviours.

PBS applies evidence-based approaches, practices and strategies for all students to increase academic performance, improve safety, decrease problem behaviour, and establish a positive school culture.

PBS places a major focus on prevention and the following key elements help to create a safe, positive and productive learning environment:

  • Clearly defined (behaviour matrix) and taught behaviour expectations (weekly)
  • Consistent and frequent acknowledgement of appropriate behaviour (Superslips in the playground, Dojo points in the classroom)
  • Constructively and specifically addressing problem behaviour
  • Effective use of behaviour data to assess and inform decision making.
