Positive Behaviour Support


What is Positive Behaviour Support? (PBS)

  • A whole school behaviour support continuum system.
  • A proactive approach, requiring whole school commitment.
    Teaching all students socially acceptable ways to behave and interact with others across all school environments through an agreed set of behavioural expectations.
    Proactively preventing and reducing the intensity and frequency of behaviours of concern
