Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

We are a PBS school.

What is Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)?

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a whole school framework which helps schools to create a safe and positive learning environments. PBS focuses on educating students about positive behaviour choices and rewarding students for displaying those positive behaviours.

At Swan View Senior High School, we believe in DARE which underpins our PBS model. We “Dare to do, Dare to be”. “Dare” is original and exclusive to Swan View. The connotations of “Dare” present a sense of challenge, of being accountable, of proving yourself, of providing evidence to support your beliefs, values and your worth. When DARE is broken down into the 4 elements; Diligent, Accountable, Respectful and Extraordinary, the word DARE is armed with integrity.

What is PBIS?

We use the PBIS system to complement PBS within our school. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioural Interventions and Support.

At Swan View Senior High School, we all use the PBIS system. The PBIS management system assists our school with our Positive Behavioural Interventions and Support programs.

The multi-device platform makes it easy to continuously recognize students for meeting behaviour expectations from anywhere in the school, not just the classroom. Staff use the PBIS system to reward student’s points and students use the system to buy prizes with their points. All staff use our reward system on a daily and session by session basis.

How does PBS operate at Swan View Senior High School?

There is a dedicated PBS team appointed in the school which consists of the Principal, Deputy Principal, Student Services Coordinator, Year Coordinator, Engagement Officer, Teachers and Education Assistants. However, the entire staff at Swan View Senior High School are committed and involved in the design and implementation of PBS.
