SCHOOL WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOURS AT OAK PARK PS
We believe that the school should be a happy learning environment which meets the needs of all students at all levels of their school life.
School-Wide Positive Behaviours (SWPB) is a whole school program which aims to create a positive school climate, a culture of student competence and an open, responsive management system for all school community members. Introducing, modelling and reinforcing positive social behaviour is an important component of a student’s educational experience. Teaching behavioural expectations and rewarding or recognising students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehaviour to occur before responding.
The Guiding Principles of School Wide Positive Behaviour
Components of SWPBS
Oak Park Primary School Values
The School-Wide Positive Bahaviours Support program is underpinned by the school’s values. At Oak Park Primary School, our values are reflected in our everyday learning and displayed and taught explicity in all areas of the school.
Our values are the ‘three R’s’; RESPECT, RESILIENCE, RESPONSIBILITY.
The Oak Park Primary School SWPB team is leading the development of a matrix of behaviours we wish to encourage. These will relate to our values, in all parts of the school and in all school related activities. All students are to be explicitly taught the values and expected behaviours. The behaviours will be consistently monitored by all staff and the relevant behaviours are expected from every staff member.

Positive Behaviours Home Matrix
Students in the SRC worked on a SWPB matrix that links our values with things that happen outside of school. Please see the Positive Behaviours Home Matrix. You might like to use it to help your children understand what our shared values mean and what we can do to demonstrate that we think these things are important.
