Positive Behaviour Support

The Grove Education Centre is implementing School-Wide Positive Behaviour Intervention Support (PBIS) with fidelity. PBIS is a multi-tiered system of support for achieving academics, behaviour, social and emotional outcomes for EVERY student.

The PBIS framework is a whole school tiered approach to student behaviour that focuses on desired behaviour outcomes. The Grove Education Centre community agreed on five expectations “The Grove 5” that are positively stated and modelled consistently across all school environments. These are:

“I am safe”, “I am responsible”, “I am respectful”, “I am friendly” and “I have feelings”.

Explicit examples of what behaviour looks like for each of these expectations are used to model preferred behaviour, creating a focus on the behaviours that we wish to see in school. The positive language associated with these expectations is embedded within the AAC systems used in school. We have a whole school focus each week.  These expectations are explicitly taught daily, shared, and celebrated across our school, with our families and our community.
