SWPBS - Copperfield College

School wide Positive Behaviour Support

We achieve when we are respectful,
responsible and value relationships


What Is School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS)?

It is a framework designed to promote and maintain a learning environment which is productive, safe and affirming of a child’s educational development, their achievements and their positive behavioural outcomes.


Our Objective

At Copperfield College, the primary aim of SWPBS is to improve the educational opportunities and outcomes for our students through the further enhancement of our positive learning environment.  This will be achieved through a whole school approach which defines, teaches and supports appropriate behaviours for all


Expected Behaviours

Behavioural expectations apply to each and every member of the Copperfield College community.  Our core expected behaviours apply not only in the classroom setting, but outside the classroom and in the wider community.

At Copperfield College, three behavioural expectations have been identified for students, teachers and the entire community to focus on.  They are Respect, Responsibility and Relationships.  In fact, these behaviours are at the core of our Values Statement.

View the Behaviour Matrix


At Copperfield College, we believe that it is not enough to just place a Behavioural Matrix on the wall. 

We are use activities and lessons, particularly for our Year 7 students, which will identify and define a matrix expectation,  discuss and model it, practice it, monitor and reteach it if necessary


Rewards & Recognition

The SWPBS team at Copperfield College believe that enhanced learning outcomes are the beneficiary of a student’s commitment to engaging in the agreed positive behaviours.

This model will allow the college to collect information on student achievement and positive behaviour, informing our decision to acknowledge those students who best reflect the SWPBS philosophy through behavioural and extra curricula achievements.
