What is Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)?
At Tettenhall Wood School, we firmly believe in the potential of every child and young person. That’s why our staff are specially trained in Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), a comprehensive approach to understanding and nurturing positive behavior.
Our Commitment to PBS:
With nine designated PBS Coaches on our team, Tettenhall Wood School is dedicated to delivering school-wide professional development sessions. Our coaches support staff in effectively implementing personalized plans tailored to individual student needs.
PBS is more than just a methodology; it’s a framework that guides us in understanding behavior at a deeper level. Our goal is to support every pupil in reaching their fullest potential and leading a happy, fulfilled life.
The Aims of PBS:
The overarching aim of PBS is to enhance the quality of a student’s life, as well as positively impact those around them. But how do we achieve this? PBS focuses on identifying specific areas where a pupil may require further support, such as:
- Sensory Regulation Strategies: Ensuring that sensory needs are met and that students are ready to learn.
- Environmental Adaptations: Making necessary adjustments to aspects like lighting and noise to create a more conducive learning environment.
- Community Engagement Activities: Promoting activities that foster engagement within the community.
- Personalized Curriculum: Tailoring the curriculum to promote individual engagement in learning, recognizing that each student’s needs and interests are unique.
A Holistic Approach
Positive Behaviour Support at Tettenhall Wood School is not just a set of strategies; it’s a holistic approach that permeates our educational philosophy. Through PBS, we strive to create a supportive, engaging, and inclusive environment where every student has the opportunity to thrive.
