At Our Lady's Primary School, we believe that education underpins everything we do. Education is also the key when it comes to student behaviour and safety.
SWPBS is a process that establishes systems and practice for teaching social and behavioural skills which in turn enhance learning and teaching. Schools have a responsibility to provide an education to students in safe and predictable environments. Establishing a positive, proactive, preventative school wide set of behavioural expectations is a necessary first step for enabling schools to achieve their goals and responsibilities.
SWPBS is an organisational framework, and is not a specific "program”, “model", "approach", "tool", or "specific curriculum", but a compilation of research- validated and effective practices, interventions, and systems change strategies.
SWPBS provides a framework for:
improving the social behavioural climate of schools
supporting or enhancing the impact of academic instruction on achievement
increasing proactive, positive, preventive management while decreasing reactive management
integrating academic and behaviour supports
improving services for all students, including students at risk and students with identified disabilities or diverse learning needs.
School Wide Expectations
At Our Lady's, we have three school wide expectations that underpin everything we do. They are;
- Do your best
- Help others succeed
- Respect your school
