Tier 1 universal prevention

Universal prevention is the most important and powerful aspects of a whole school systems approach. Universal prevention focuses on preventing problems and creating an environment that supports student learning and wellbeing.

Effective, evidence-based classroom management and instruction are critical components of universal prevention.The school's Learning and Support Teams and/or PBL teams work to prevent problem behaviour and increase the likelihood of academic success by creating positive learning environments for all.

Establishing strong systems of universal prevention for ALL students helps to reduce the number of students who need additional support. This helps the school to work more intensively with students who have additional learning and support needs.
