How might we?:

How might we ensure that all students feel they belong and are valued at Meadowbrook School and understand what it means to be a Bulldog?

Describe the prototype(s) your school will focus on. Get creative. Be sure to describe the various approaches staff will take, what you will keep your eye on and how staff plan to document their results.

What We Tried:

Redesigning our school environment,  we consider "What is good for one may be good for all". With this in mind, we want to initiate a whole school model of support by creating The Learning Hub (learning support classroom), The Haven (socio-emotional support arts centre), Positive Behaviour Intervention System and rotating six week learning assistant schedules (to support Literacy/Numeracy interventions and learner needs). 

What we kept our eyes on:

Creating a Meadowbrook PRIDE feeling with Bulldog Bonanza, Bulldog Swag and Bulldog "PRIDE" lessons. 

Using data to understand usage of Learning Hub and Haven 

Monitor student behaviour

Flexibility of students access to alternate learning spaces

Student attendance and Staff attendance

How we documented our results:


Create sign-in and sign-out system, 

Create PBIS behaviour tracking system



What we learned:

Spaces need to be flexible

Building staff's understanding of purpose behind changes increases by-in and use

Recognizing the importance of patience and flexibility when introducing new ideas and programs


Our next steps:

Continue to use Timperley’s “Spiral of Inquiry” to learn and grow our instruction, spaces and PBIS.
