School Wide Positive Behaviours

What is School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS)?

School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is an evidence-based school-wide approach for developing and explicitly teaching appropriate and positive behaviours. SWPBS is built through a range of whole-school and individual interventions that aim to achieve age-specific social and learning outcomes for all students while preventing problem behaviour.


At Mickleham Primary School, our SWPBS processes are consistently monitored through the use of student behavioural data. Our Student Wellbeing Vertical Team meets monthly to identify areas of need through this data, this is then fed back to PLCs to inform their planning of SWPBS lessons.

All students follow our school expectations as found on our school matrix. Each expectation links directly to one of our four school R.I.C.H. values:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Independent
  • Be Cooperative
  • Be Honest

Classrooms have a dedicated Ready to Learn time at the beginning of each school day. At least two of these sessions are dedicated to the teaching and re teaching of our SWPBS expectations.

Expected behaviours are celebrated and rewarded through our token system. Staff members are able to award individual tokens to students to recognise their positive behaviours. Whole class pig tokens can also be awarded when the class collectively works together to display our expected behaviours.
