School-wide positive behaviour support (SWPBS) is a framework that helps our school to develop a positive,
safe, and supportive learning culture.
It sets clear rules for what's expected and rewards kids for making good choices. By focusing on the good stuff,
the framework creates a positive and supportive environment where kids feel happy, respected and safe.
The Behaviour Matrix turns these values into expected behaviours. Expected behaviours are explicitly taught in
each classroom. They show students how to have positive behaviours in each area of our school. We teach
each behaviour to the students.
A whole school system is used to reinforce positive behaviours. We are looking for students who are
demonstrating our school's positive values. When a teacher sees a student displaying one of our positive
behaviour values, the student receives a token related to the value, which is added to the collection tubes in
the student’s classroom.
When a behaviour tube is filled, the class earns a leaf for our whole school tree located at the front office, as
well as a class reward, decided by each class.
Once our tree is full of leaves, students vote on a whole-school celebration/reward.
Why do we do this?
Because students need to know that what they are doing is awesome and it's fun!
