SWPBS School Wide Positive Behaviour Support

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a framework that brings together our school community to develop a positive, safe and supporting learning environment.

The evidence based framework aims to create a positive school environment by encouraging, and explicitly teaching expected behaviours which allows students and teachers more time to focus on classroom instruction and develop relationships.

Respectful Relationships

Respectful Relationships education aims to create positive relationships for all young people. The program supports schools to model and promote positive behaviours and attitudes, and it supports students to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.

The Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships curriculum promotes social and emotional skills and positive gender norms in children and young people.

At RPS the core principles are embedded into daily learning.

Wellbeing Hub

In our school, we’ve established a practical and welcoming wellbeing space where students can find support and solace during their day. This area isn’t just a place to unwind; it’s a hub of activity during morning, recess, and lunch breaks. Students can participate in guided play and a variety of clubs aimed at promoting relaxation and social development. Our dedicated Wellbeing Officer ensures students are connected with external agencies for additional support when necessary. It’s a supportive and inclusive environment where all students are encouraged to seek help and find their footing when things get tough.

Buddy Program

At RPS, our Buddy Program connects Year 5 students with Foundation students, fostering a supportive environment and sense of community within the school. This initiative aims to provide social and support networks for new Foundation students, promoting a sense of belonging. Through regular interaction and activities such as shared reading, teddy bear picnic, collaborative art projects and nature walks in our school gardens, the Buddy Program develops meaningful relationships between older and younger students. In turn, nurturing leadership skills in senior students and offering reassurance to younger ones. This collaborative effort strengthens the school community and cultivates positive behaviour among all students.
