Primary School members
are expected to demonstrate the following behaviour expectations
towards themselves, others and the school.
What is PBS and what does it look like at Challis?
PBS stands for Positive Behaviour Support. It is used widely in schools around Australia and is a framework for teaching students expected behaviours. At Challis, we embed PBS into our daily language by referring to the way we act at school as the 'Challis Way' or the 'expected behaviour'. Each fortnight, our PBS team creates a skit that demonstrates to students an expected behaviour. The team demonstrates what it looks like and does not look like through a film that children watch in their classroom. This is reinforced through activities completed within classrooms and by students receiving RISE tokens. At Challis, we use RISE tokens. When a student demonstrates an expected behaviour, they get a RISE token. These accumulate and students are rewarded in groups such as factions or classes during the term.
The goal of PBS is to encourage students to demonstrate the expected behaviour when at school for example we speak kindly to others. This will then translate to the world around them.
