 At St. Michael's Primary School, we believe that education underpins everything we do. Education is also the key when it comes to student behaviour and safety. 

SWPBS is a process that establishes systems and practice for teaching social and behavioural skills which in turn enhance learning and teaching. Schools have a responsibility to provide an education to students in safe and predictable environments. Establishing a positive, proactive, preventative school wide set of behavioural expectations is a necessary first step for enabling schools to achieve their goals and responsibilities.

SWPBS is an organisational framework, and is not a specific "program”, “model", "approach", "tool", or "specific curriculum", but a compilation of research- validated and effective practices, interventions, and systems change strategies.

SWPBS provides a framework for:

  • improving the social behavioural climate of schools

  • supporting or enhancing the impact of academic instruction on achievement

  • increasing proactive, positive, preventive management while decreasing reactive management

  • integrating academic and behaviour supports

  • improving services for all students, including students at risk and students with identified disabilities or diverse learning needs.
