Our Behaviour Statement 

‘At Selby Primary School we endeavour to create and maintain a nurturing learning environment which fosters positive student participation through our values of 
Confidence, Resilience, Respect and Personal Best.’

School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS)

At Selby Primary School we use the School-Wide Positive Behaviour (SWPBS) approach to promote positive behaviour at our school amongst; staff, students and our community.

The SWPBS approach is underpinned by our school values. The following values are explicitly taught and acknowledged while providing a basis for our everyday interactions with each other:

  • Respect – caring about ourselves, others and the environment in which we live and work
  • Resilience – bouncing back from setbacks, keeping things in proportion and learning from mistakes
  • Personal Best – having a go, trying our best at all things and striving to improve in order to achieve personal best
  • Confidence – developing self-esteem, an open-minded attitude and a positive outlook on life
