At Manchester Primary School we have been developing and implementing the framework of School Wide Positive Behaviour Support within our school. School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) operates on the premise that as well as being learners of literacy and numeracy, children are also learners of behaviour.

Using this framework, it is the role of the teachers and school community members to explicitly teach children appropriate behaviours and to set explicit behaviour expectations.

We surveyed the parents, staff and students, and agreed upon a set of values and descriptors which underpins every action and conduct in our school community.

Respect – We care for ourselves and each other.

Responsibility – We do the right thing and own up to our actions.

Resilience – We keep trying even when things are difficult.
