Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supportslg_Prospect logo1.png

In October we launched PBIS - Positive   Behaviour Interventions and Supports at PPS. 
This is a Cayman wide approach to rewarding good behaviour and tackling poor behaviour. The PBIS approach has been a huge success in a large number of countries world wide. The PBIS approach teaches students to take ownership of their own behaviour and supports them to make positive choices. 
One way we are going to use PBIS will be through the use of our YOYOB Charts, YOYOB means 'You Own Your Own Behaviour'.  Core to what we are doing will be to ask students to reflect on their own behaviour and the choices that they make and to help them to understand that they are responsible for whether they make good choices or poor choices. 
Each day students will start with their 'peg' or clothes pin on the picture of a paw (this is our PBIS Care icon) if a student makes a good choice they will move their peg up to silver. If they make a poor choice their peg will be moved on to Warning 1 and so up or down the ladder.
Three good choices and they will get a reward, this may be a phone call home or a sticker or a certificate . 
Three poor choices and they will get a sanction. The nature of the sanction will depend on the severity of their behaviour and what sanctions they have had in the past. They may miss their break, be sent to see the Principal or their parents may be called in. 
All behaviours, positive and negative, will be recorded by the  teacher so we can track each child's behaviour and spot patterns. 
By highlighting good behaviour and being relentlessly positive it provides all students with a model of how we expect them to behave at all times. 
This is just one aspect of the work we will be doing as part of PBIS and over the next few weeks and months. We will share our work with you on this page.


Our PBIS Logo:

Our logo for PBIS is a paw print. The paw print reminds us that we must cooperate. We must have the right attitude at all times. We must show respect for one another, adults and the environment and the school. We must strive for excellence at all times.
