Safe and Caring Schools
School-wide PBS is a systems approach for establishing the social culture and behavorial supports needed for a school to be an effective learning environment for all students
Schools face a set of difficult challenges today.Multiple expectations (Academic accomplishment, Social competence, Safety)
Students arrive at school with widely differing understandings of what is socially acceptable
Traditional “get tough” and “zero tolerance” approaches are insufficient
Individual student interventions
Effective, but can’t meet need
School-wide discipline systems
Establish a school culture within which both social and academic success is more likely
Bishop Feild is actively involved with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District in establishing Positive Behavioural Supports here at the school. The Feildian Pledge outlines the responsibilities of all stakeholders in the school.
Feild has established a behavioural matrix, The Feildian Four, which outlines the behaviours expected in all areas of the school as well as a school-wide behaviour plan. The Code of Conduct outlines the operations of the school. It is currently in draft form.
