Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

Currambine Primary School is a WA Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) school, which means we define, teach and encourage expected behaviour, and build respectful relationships.

Our four school-wide expectations are Excellence, Respect, Integrity and Kindness.

As a school, we teach the following definitions:

  • EXCELLENCE is striving to achieve your best in all that you do.
  • Treating someone with RESPECT means that you interact with them in a way that shows that you care about their well-being and how they feel.
  • INTEGRITY is when you do the right thing when no one is looking. It is when you speak and act truthfully. It is choosing to do what is right even when it is hard.
  • KINDNESS is when you demonstrate a willingness to listen to, feel for and understand others needs and try to help and support them.

We encourage you to discuss these expectations with your children at home.

Students take part in lessons that explain what these expectations look like in different areas within our school.

For example, our first lessons will focus on moving around the school. What does RESPECT look like when we are walking around the school? Is it listening to and following teacher instructions? Is it moving around the school quietly? Lessons will focus on teaching these skills to students by explaining what it looks like, showing them what it does and does not look like and giving them a chance to practice the behaviour. Just like a lesson in any other curriculum area, it is important that the expected behaviour is taught and understood by all students.

All staff will acknowledge students demonstrating Excellence, Respect, Integrity and Kindness as students who are being an ‘ERIK’.

‘ERIK’ tokens will be given to all students both inside and outside the classroom. Class teachers will record when students are given an ERIK token. In Term One, students will be acknowledged when they collect 50, 100, 150 and 200 tokens.

Students, parents, teachers and visitors to our school are encouraged to be an ERIK.
