School Wide Positive Behaviour

Responsibility, RespectResilience and Readiness 

Broadford Primary School has adopted a SWPBS framework. This is also known as Positive Behaviour Support or PBS. PBS involves the establishment of a Continuum of Behaviour Support that considers all students and emphasises prevention. It is a proactive approach and focuses on teaching all students agreed expected behaviours and pro-social skills rather than reacting to inappropriate behaviour. This in turn creates a safer and more effective school environment. The primary prevention aspect of PBS consists of values which are explicitly taught and modelled by school staff to encourage appropriate behaviour. Teaching behavioural expectations and acknowledging students for meeting them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehaviour to occur before responding.


At Broadford Primary School we have developed with students and staff four expected behaviours.

Readiness to learn

Behaviour Purpose Statement


Our Behaviour Purpose Statement acknowledges that parents/guardians and school staff are strongly motivated to support every child. Everyone has the right to differing opinions and views and to raise concerns, as long as we do this respectfully as a community working together. As members of the BPS community we support the schools expectations in the following ways:


At Broadford Primary School, we create positive learning environments to allow all students to develop respect, responsibility, resilience and a readiness to learn. This encourages us to believe in ourselves and contribute positively to our community.
