School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS)

Responsible Behaviour Plan (PDF, 1.8 MB)

Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support as defined by Horner and Sugai (2004) is: 'comprised of a broad range of systemic and individualised strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behaviour with all students. SWPBS is not a specific model but a compilation of effective practices, interventions, and systems change strategies that have a long history of empirical support and development and individually have been demonstrated to be empirically effective and efficient.'

In practical terms, SWPBS is:

  • A proactive schoolwide system of support for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviours to create positive school environments.
  • A behaviourally-based systems approach to improving the link between evidence-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs.
    Creating and sustaining schoolwide, classroom and individual systems of support that improve lifestyle results for all learners.
  • Building effective environments in which positive behaviour is more effective than problem behaviour so that academic and social success is maximised.
