Pastoral Care


Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

Dalkeith Primary School have implemented a Positive Behaviour Support matrix and embedded this across the school from K-6. The PBS team, along with all staff and students show commitment by promoting positively driven behaviour expectations. Each class contextualises their classroom agreements under the headings of the ‘3 R’s’ (Respect, Responsibility and Resilience) to reinforce the behaviours of the matrix.


Lesson plans are created and shared with all staff for the explicit teaching of the behaviours. These lesson plans are based on the overwhelmingly successful HooRRRah assemblies that are conducted once a fortnight. The HooRRRah draw rewards students individually and at a House level. We have found that this multi-tiered approach has encouraged all students to work together as a team to be celebrated for their positive behaviours.
