School-wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is an evidence-based framework for preventing and responding to student behaviour. It aims to create a positive school climate, a culture of student competence and an open, responsive management system for all school community members. It includes analysis of data in professional learning teams, implementation of evidence based practices and organisational systems for establishing safe, purposeful and inclusive school and classroom learning environments while providing the individual behaviour and learning supports needed to achieve academic and social success for all students.
A key part of this is an acknowledgement system for students who do the right thing at Larapinta. Larry the Lion provides this acknowledgement at Larapinta. Students receive 'Larries' for being Safe, Respectful and for Learning, and receive various prizes for 50, 100, 150 and 200 Larries.
