What is Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)?

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a whole school framework which helps schools to create positive learning environments. This is achieved by developing proactive systems to define, teach, and support appropriate student behaviours.

PBS-EmblemWhat does it mean for Coodanup College?

At Coodanup College we are committed to changing the way we educate our young people. We have introduced a positive framework called the PBS Matrix that;

  • Actively teaches students the behaviour we want to see
  • Rewards students for positive behaviour
  • Raises expectations
  • Provides opportunities for leadership
  • Promotes a learning culture
  • Holds everyone in the school community accountable

See below for the PBS Matrix which outlines the College’s behaviour expectations:

How does PBS operate at Coodanup College?

There is a dedicated PBS team appointed in the school which consists of the Principal, Deputy Principal, Year Coordinator, SAER Manager, Teachers and Education Assistants. However, the entire staff at Coodanup College are committed and involved in the design and implementation of PBS.

The team has a Chairperson, PBS Coach, Data Manager, Communications Officer, Secretary and other team members, who meet on a fortnightly basis to drive the PBS action plan.

There will be updates for parents and students communicated via our Facebook page, newsletter, website and new school app (to be launched soon). Coodanup College will be inviting parents to join the committee in 2016, so please contact us to express your interest on (08) 9581 0900.
