Positive Behaviour Support at Lathlain Primary School

PBS stands for Positive Behaviour Support and is an operational framework that aims to improve student academic and behaviour outcomes by ensuring all students have access to the most effective and accurately implemented instructional and behavioural practices and interventions possible.

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a whole school framework which helps schools to create positive learning environments. Our school values, defined by the community, guide the behaviour of everyone in our school; staff, students, parents and community members. This is achieved by developing proactive systems to define, teach and support appropriate student behaviour. At Lathlain we focus on our 4 core values of Care, Attitude, Respect and Excellence.

A behaviour matrix formulated by the school community, articulates what these expectations look like in everyday school life.  A number of verbal, non-verbal and tangibles are used to reinforce students who display the desired behaviour.

There is a dedicated PBS team appointed in the school which consists of the administration, classroom teachers, specialist teachers and education assistants. However, the entire staff at Lathlain Primary are committed and involved in the design and implementation of PBS.
