SWPBL

SWPBL

School-Wide Positive Behaviour Learning (SWPBL) is an Education Queensland initiative that fosters responsible student behaviour through a unified, school-wide behaviour program. For consistency all school rules are taught around 3 expectations which, at SLSS are;
We are Cooperative
We are Peaceful
We are Respectful
A consistent set of expectations across the school ensures that students are directly aware of what is required regarding their behaviour at school. As behaviour is closely linked with effective learning it is essential that children learn and develop the expected behaviour of the school.
The SWPBL focus is on positive behaviours.
Weekly Lessons
Each week, all students are taught a behaviour concept or skill relating to the school-wide expectations to foster and improve our safe, supportive school setting.
Instant Rewards
Doves are given by any member on staff as an instant reward for demonstrating appropriate behaviour.
School-Wide Positive Reward System
Our school implements a whole-school positive reward system where children move through levels. In each class a child has a dove collection chart. Children earn dove stamps by receiving a negotiated amount of doves. Once a child completes their dove collection chart they are then rewarded with a blue wristband (first level) and they receive a certificate. Then they are working towards the next coloured wristband. See here to view wristband levels.
How is inappropriate behaviour dealt with in SWPBL
While the focus of SWPBL is on positive behaviour, usual consequences, as outlined in the school’s Responsible Behaviour Plan, apply for inappropriate behaviour.
Our school provides programs such as the Solutions Centre to help children develop strategies to use in the playground. SWPBL has been shown to support appropriate student behaviour through a wide range of unified approaches, thereby leading to a happier, more harmonious school.
