TOGETHER we, RESPECT ourselves, each other, school and community, strive for EXCELLENCE, show COURAGE in all situations and demonstrate SAFETY in all that we do.
We learn for life!
Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a whole-school approach to creating a safe and supportive environment that has a strong evidence-base and is used in many schools across the Northern Territory. A safe and orderly school environment is important to learning.
SWPBS provides a clear set of behaviour expectations are developed around our key school values (as defined in our matrix).
Together we: show Respect, strive for Excellence, show Courage, demonstrate Safety
Students are recognised for positive behaviours. Positive expectations and behaviours are explicitly taught and encouraged.
A matrix has been developed for teachers and students to identify the expected behaviours at Alyangula Area School. The matrix includes appropriate behaviours in specific areas including: whole school, learning areas, grounds, during play, community and to and from school.
These behaviours are displayed around the school and discussed regularly in all classes.
