What is PBIS?

PBIS is a framework that assists the teaching of social and behavioural skills in the aim to enhance learning and teaching. Schools have a responsibility to provide an education to students in safe and predictable environments. Establishing a positive, proactive, preventative schoolwide set of behavioural expectations is a necessary first step for enabling our school to achieve our goals and responsibilities.

At St John’s we believe that explicitly teaching social and behavioural skills will enhance learning and teaching; both in and outside the classroom. Known as our 4B’s; Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Like Jesus, these are the expectations that we value within our learning area, our yard, in the community and in the cyberworld. 


Behaviour Vision Statement 

At St John’s learning occurs when staff, students and parents maintain relationships of trust, kindness and respect. We model and teach behaviour to support student learning and wellbeing.
