School Wide Positive Behaviour Support
School-wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a whole-school framework which provides a research based approach to promote positive behaviour at our school. The SWPBS approach has been developed from evidence and data, demonstrating the most effective ways to prevent and respond to problem behaviour, improve school culture and increase academic performance.
At Kilsyth Primary School our SWPBS approach is underpinned by our school values. We expect students to demonstrate behaviours that reflect:
Excellence, Resilience and Respect.
Our teachers explicitly teach these behaviour expectations in line with our Behaviour Matrix and the Victorian Curriculum.

A key element of our SWPBS approach is to acknowledge and recognise students who are seen meeting the school expectations:
Excellence, Resilience & Respect.
As part of our school wide acknowledgement system Students receive feather tokens which are collected and tallied towards a common goal. When the school reaches the set goal there will be a School Wide Celebration.
Our teachers and support staff have received training in providing positive feedback. Recognition and feedback reinforces the desired actions from students. When students are given positive feedback, it encourages their peers to notice such acts and also change their behaviours to positively meet our school values and expectations.
