Koorana ESC is a positive behaviour support school (PBS).
We share the same 4 behaviour expectations with KPS.
I am SAFE I am MOTIVATED TO ACHIEVE I am RESPECTFUL I am TRUSTWORTHY
We have 4 to 5 behaviours related to each of these expectations, which are explicitly taught across all classes. These are our Koorana SMART behaviours and form our Behaviour Matrix.
We believe that behaviour is a skill and can be taught.
We acknowledge and reward students who are showing the Koorana SMART behaviours through a hierarchy of systems, both in the class and across the school.
Incidents of inappropriate behaviour are seen as opportunities to teach the child a more appropriate action or way to solve their problem.
