Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

What is PBS?

 

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a flexible, whole-school approach to children’s behaviour.

It is an ecological approach, bringing together the influence and interaction of the student’s inherent qualities/strengths/challenges, plus the interaction with their environment. This environment includes the home, class, whole school community and wider community. 

PBS in Western Australia supports the implementation of the WA Ed Department School Behaviour Policy 2016 with the focus on preventative, proactive strategies and logical consequences. At Burrendah Primary School we recognise the importance of creating classroom conditions that promote academic engagement, because these are crucial in establishing schools and classrooms where behaviours are more productive.
