Behaviour Management

Hatton Vale State School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning School and is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing.

The goal of Positive Behaviour Support is to enhance the capacity of schools to educate all students, especially students with challenging social behaviours, by establishing an effective continuum of PBS systems and practices.

The continuum is characterised by:

  • An emphasis on prevention
  • An increasing intensity of intervention for increasing intensities of problem behaviour
  • A provision of basic proactive programming (primary prevention) for all students by all staff in all settings.

With Positive Behaviour for Learning:

  • Expectations for student behaviour are defined by a school based team with all staff input.
  • Effective behavioural support is implemented consistently by staff and administration.
  • Appropriate student behaviour is taught.
  • Positive behaviours are publicly acknowledged.
  • Problem behaviours have clear consequences.
  • Student behaviour is monitored and staff receive regular feedback.
  • Effective behavioural support strategies are implemented at the school-wide, specific setting, classroom, and individual student level.
  • Effective behavioural support strategies are designed to meet the needs of all students.
