Yarralinka Primary School has adopted the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) framework as a way to build a positive school culture and attributes within our students. Through this framework we have developed clear behaviour expectations for our students, which are explicitly taught and reinforced in daily school life. Our expected behaviours are aligned to our four school values of respect, responsibility, resilience and reach. A copy of our school expected behaviours can be found below.
One of the ways we acknowledge students who demonstrate our expected behaviours is through our whole-school PBS points system. Students are able to receive PBS points when they demonstrate these behaviours. Each class has a milestones system in place, where students receive rewards when they achieve certain PBS points totals. The class milestone also includes a whole-class target reward. In addition to class milestone levels, we have whole-school celebration achievement targets. When the school collectively reaches a certain total of PBS points all students, who have their Good Standing in place, get to participate in a reward activity.
