School wide positive behaviour support (SWPBS)

At Wooranna Park Primary School we are committed to a school wide positive behaviour support (SWPBS).  This is an evidence-based framework for Victorian government schools, aimed at creating a positive, safe and supportive learning culture.


Our school wide approach helps to ensure teachers and students have more time to 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

Our students know these expectations as our school's basics:

  • Be respectful
  • Be responsible
  • Be safe

These basics are captured in our school's Matrix of Expectations.
