At Patterson River Secondary College our purpose is to provide a supportive and productive learning community where students are challenged by high expectations to achieve their personal best. School Wide Positive Behaviour provides an opportunity for us as a College to achieve this purpose and provide clear expectations for our students. School Wide Positive Behaviour is a framework for teaching and acknowledging the positive behaviours of the students in our College community. It is about emphasising the importance between a supportive relationship, classroom culture and individual student success.
This will be achieved through the use of School Wide Positive Behaviour matrices located around the College, in both classroom settings as well as communal areas. These will be used as visual prompts for students as they move around the College and for staff to refer to when teaching expected behaviours. School Wide Positive Behaviour strategies and expectations will be embedded in the curriculum and engaged with in all areas of the College.
