SRL (Safe, Respectful, Learner) Program

At Prairiewood High School, our SRL, or Safe, Respectful Learner program is based on the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) framework – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

We also expect all students to abide by the DoE Behaviour code for students.

PHS SRL Behaviour Expectations

Students are empowered to participate in decision-making through active involvement in the school’s leadership of PBL.

All staff are responsible for teaching the behaviour expectations, providing consistent positive feedback to students, and delivering consistent corrective feedback and consequences when expectations are not followed. The entire school, including the classrooms, corridors, canteen, school gates and buses/travel, is considered part of the total learning environment.

Providing a continuum of support for students

Prairiewood High School develops a continuum of support that promotes student learning and wellbeing for all students. Importantly, students have access to more support when they need it. The continuum emphasises prevention and early intervention and includes:

  • Tier 1 Universal prevention: school-wide and classroom systems for all students, staff and settings
  • Tier 2 Targeted interventions: small group systems for students at-risk behaviourally and academically
  • Tier 3 Intensive interventions: systems for students with high-risk behaviour and/or learning needs.

If you would like additional information about our SRL program, please contact one of the school's coordinators Ms Pool and Ms So.
