Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support


Bollon State School is committed to continually improving whole-school discipline in order to provide positive learning environments for all students. As such, we have adopted Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support as our behaviour management system.

Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a whole-school framework which helps schools to create positive learning environments. This is achieved by developing proactive systems to define, teach, and support appropriate student behaviours.

SWPBS was developed by leading educational experts in the United States where it is used in more than 18,000 schools. Many of the world's leading education systems have adopted SWPBS, including Canada, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Norway and Denmark, with Finland commencing a SWPBS trial in 2013.

Since being introduced in Queensland in 2005, the SWPBS framework has helped more

than 400 state schools develop successful whole school behaviour management systems.

Data shows that when SWPBS is implemented with integrity it helps reduce problem behaviour and increase academic performance. Principals have also reported decreases in referrals of students, allowing time saved to be invested into other areas of school business.

Through SWPBS, schools implement evidence-based approaches to managing student behaviour support issues at the local community level. With an emphasis on data-based decision-making, the framework is evaluated regularly and practices are adjusted to make sure the process is achieving effective results for schools.​

Responsible behaviour plan

 

Our responsible behaviour plan for students is designed to facilitate high standards of behaviour so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community. 

The plan was developed in collaboration with our community, via our P&C forum, and parents, staff and students had input as well.
