Behaviour Management


Three school rules provide the basis for behaviour management at St Johns:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible

Behaviour management in non-classroom and classroom areas is guided by the School Wide Positive Behaviours for Learning Program.  We have implemented a School-Wide Positive Behaviours for Learning SPB4L Framework over the next 3-5 years. The goal of SPB4L is to help parents and school staff, create and maintain a safe, supportive learning environment, promote positive life skills and reduce negative behaviours so that all children can succeed in school.

The SPB4L Framework focuses on building a positive environment for children and staff by establishing clear expectations for children and taking active, explicit steps in teaching, modelling and reinforcing appropriate behaviours school-wide.

SPB4L applies a behaviourally based systems approach to enhance the St John’s School Community and in doing so aims to design an effective school environment in which quality teaching and learning can occur.

SPB4L:

  • focuses on creating and sustaining school-wide (universal), classroom (secondary), and individual (tertiary) supports that improve lifestyle results for all children by making problem behaviour less effective, less efficient, less relevant and desired behaviour more functional.
  • establishes a leadership team that guides the implementation of SPB4L strategies.
  • develops a set of core behavioural expectations for all children in the school, across all school settings.
  • engages all school staff, parents and children in maintaining expectations and employing strategies.
  • teaches consistent expectations across all areas of the school.
  • provides positive reinforcement for compliance with expectations.
  • establishes a hierarchy of consequences as corrective procedures.
  • collects data on the use of established procedures and the impact of those procedures on behaviour.
  • builds a set of procedures for maintaining SPB4L strategies school-wide.
