Positive Behaviour Support is a whole school initiative started way back in 2011.
In practical terms PBS is about:
- Proactive school wide systems of support for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviours to create positive learning environments.
- A behaviourally-based systems approach to improving the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs.
- Creating and sustaining school wide, classroom and individual systems of support.
- Building effective environments in which positive behaviour is more effective than problem behaviour so that academic success can be achieved.
As part of the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support Initiative, Capel Primary has four behaviour expectations which are represented by a character called a “PIRC”. These expectations form the basis of our Positve Behaviour Management, Incentives systems and reteaching behaviour philosophy.
Our four factions have inspired the creation of the leaf shaped PIRC’s
