Students - Student Welfare

At Coburg Primary School, we are respectful, honest and resilient and work as a team to create a positive learning environment. We encourage, support and care for each other as we grow and learn.

We commenced the School Wide Positive Behaviour Program in 2017.

We base our School Wide Positive Behaviour Program on our school values.

Courage, Empathy, Curiosity and Respect.


Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important step of a student's educational experience. Teaching behavioral expectations and acknowledging students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding.

Implementing SWPBS improves schools’ climate and helps keep students and teachers in safe and productive classrooms by:

  • reducing disciplinary incidents
  • improving attendance rates
  • increasing a school’s sense of safety and atmosphere
  • supporting improved academic outcomes
  • teaching skills necessary for life


In 2019 our focus will be on establishing a school wide acknowledgement system.
