Philosophy

At Lockington Consolidated School, we strive to respect ourselves, each other, and our environment.

We achieve these things by following our 4 key values which are:

Community

Courage

Curiosity

Creativity

Each of the values are personified by one of our four captains. Students who are observed displaying these favourable traits earn tickets. When 15 tickets of one colour are obtained, the students are awarded a wristband in that colour.

What is SWPBS?

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a framework that helps schools to plan and implement practices across the whole school, to improve educational and behaviour outcomes for all students

The SWPBS framework is founded on a positive approach to whole school wellbeing with targeted approaches for students with higher levels of need.

Aims and objectives

The primary aim of SWPBS is to improve educational outcomes for students. It achieves this through:

prevention of behaviour problems and management of existing issues positively and consistently

developing skills and knowledge in schools for better teaching and learning

creating and maintaining a better school environment for students, teachers and the whole school community

Why SWPBS?

SWPBS provides schools with a decision-making framework that uses data to guide selection and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioural practices across the whole school.

SWPBS was developed over 20 years ago, and is now internationally recognised and used in most other Australian states.
