School-Wide Positive Behaviour

School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is an evidence-based whole-school framework that provides the school with an approach to improve social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for all students. When SWPBS is implemented well, teachers and students can focus on relationships and classroom instruction.

Students and staff benefit from:

  • increased respectful and positive behaviour
  • increased time focused on instruction
  • improved social-emotional wellbeing
  • positive and respectful relationships among students and staff
  • increased adoption of evidence-based instructional practices
  • a predictable learning environment with improved perceptions of safety and increased attendance.
Behaviour Matrix

Our Behaviour Matrix clearly outlines the expected behaviours of students at Stevensville Primary. Clear, positive behaviours have been identified and are displayed across the school. Every student has an individual copy of the matrix they can refer to. 

The expected behaviours are explicitly taught within the classroom at the beginning of the school year. 


Values Card System

Stevensville has developed a Values Card system to acknowledge expected behaviour and promote commitment from all community members.

Teachers and staff hand out values cards to students who display the expected behaviours outlined in the matrix. Students who receive a values card go into a draw to be acknowledged at assembly. Weekly winners go into another mega draw, drawn at the end of each term.
