Positive Behaviour Support in Schools

A positive behaviour support approach for schools can significantly reduce behaviour issues that are a key obstacle to learning. Taking a whole school approach to behaviour is one of the best solutions to preventing issues whatever the type of school. This is called School Wide Positive Behaviour Support. Using a tiered approach to interventions the School Wide PBS approach puts into place a continuum of support for all students.
