The Quality of Life Framework encapsulates all the work already being done across all areas of the school, it is an inherent part in our ethos and intent, and it also quite naturally sits alongside our Positive Behaviour Support approach and values. With a strong focus on Independence, Social participation and Well-being, the framework gives us a fantastic opportunity to identify areas for improvement and focus. 

PBS supports human rights and supports respect, dignity and inclusion working in partnership with the person and their family. The overall aim of PBS is to improve the quality of a person’s life and that of the people around them. PBS uses different methods to gather information about the function behind the behaviour and empowers people to identify better methods to meet their needs. This is achieved through the implementation of natural consequences, dialogue, clearly defined boundaries and high expectations which helps young people begin to independently develop their own strategies and make improved choices over time.
