School Wide Positive Behaviour Approach

At Westall our approach to student behaviour centres around the following three values 

  • Safety

  • Respect

  • Responsibility

The School-wide Positive Behavior Approach (SWPBA) is an evidence-based framework that improves student behavior and academic outcomes. It features:

  • Clear behavior expectations

  • Positive reinforcement

  • Consistent consequences

  • Proactive approach

  • Collaborative involvement

  • Data-driven decision-making

  • Targeted interventions

  • Ongoing professional development

  • Sustainable implementation

SWPBA has been proven effective in reducing disciplinary issues, enhancing student behavior, and promoting a positive school climate. It fosters a supportive learning environment by teaching and reinforcing positive behaviors school-wide.
