Positive Behaviour Support

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a positive school-wide approach to behaviour management. It will build on and integrate a range of existing strategies to improve behaviour, learning and safety. It’s proactive approach whereby expected behaviours are explicitly taught, allowing students to make better choices. Students use a learning log to learn about and record positive behaviour. PBS is an evidence based approach which focuses on early intervention and emphasises self-discipline.
