School-wide positive behaviour support (SWPBS) is a framework that brings together school communities to develop positive, safe, supportive learning cultures.

At Flemington Primary School we have developed and implemented School Wide Positive Behaviour Support within our school. School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) operates on the premise that as well as being learners of Literacy and Numeracy, children are also learners of behaviour. Under this model, it is the role of the school staff with the support of the school community to set behaviour expectations and explicitly teach children appropriate behaviours.

Our school community has identified and defined our school values, to be visible, and we ensure our feedback aligns with each value.

Be Kind Be Safe Be respectful Be ready to learn


As a school we have collaborated with the staff, students and community and these values are reflected in all that we do at FPS.


The SWPB framework supports the Annual Implementation Plan in all areas of Well Being, Engagement, Productivity and Achievement. Creating a positive learning environment will lead to increased student outcomes.




The Respectful Relationships whole-school approach recognises that schools are a workplace, a community hub and a place of learning. Everyone involved in our school community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally.



We know that changes in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are lived across the school community, and when classroom learning is reinforced by what is modelled in our school community.
