Welcome to Airly Primary School

“You   R   ACE” at Airly Primary School

Staff and students from Airly Primary School are taught and rewarded for their display of Airly ACE values:

Respect - caring for everybody and everything


Attitude - be happy


Co-operation - working together


Environment - look after plants, animals and the learning environment


Together, we made a Positive Behaviour Matrix that displays the positive behaviours we expect to see across the school. These are taught to students throughout the school year.

Students who show the positive behaviours are rewarded with Airly ACE cards and are told WHY they are receiving the card (a valuable teaching moment).

At each morning assembly a card is drawn and that student receives the Airly ACE ‘special chair’ award for the next day. This is a highly coveted prize!

When students have received 20 ACE cards, they may choose an individual reward (eg. a cooking Masterclass, lucky dip, LEGO time, iPad time, etc). The reward is negotiated by individual students.

When the whole student body displays ‘ACE’ behaviour students are rewarded with an ACE block (coloured in the appropriate Value colour). When 50 blocks are earned, the students negotiate a special reward day.

Since introducing SWPBS in our school, everyone is more aware of behaviour expectations and consequences. Data is collected to monitor positive and negative behaviour. The overall result is that negative behaviour incidents have reduced and students are more able to articulate our school values and what is expected of their behaviour.

Airly Primary School is also a Respectful Relationships School

The Royal Commission into Family Violence identified the critical role that schools have in creating a culture of respect to change the story of family violence for future generations.  In 2016, respectful relationships education became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from foundation to year 12.

Respectful Relationships is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships between teachers and students. 


In 2019 we are participating in a Wellington Network pilot program to ‘marry’ SWPBS and Respectful Relationships learning.
