Positive Behaviour Learning- PBL

This program is a "consistent, school-wide system of support that helps define, teach and support appropriate student behaviours, creating a quality school environment".

It is for all schools, all students and all staff. PBL helps to make schools better places to live, work and learn. It does so by giving schools the tools to build comprehensive, school-wide systems that support academic and social-emotional and behavioural learning for all students."

At our school, we will be focusing on the value of "Respect" over the next term, with each teacher planning a lesson that the whole school does EACH MONDAY. This lesson will then be reinforced throughout the week in class, in the playground and at assemblies. During Term 2, 2016 we will be beginning our focus on RESPONSIBILITY.

How can you help your child with PBL?

Please ask your child what we talked about during the PBL lessons each week. You can positively reinforce and talk about the lessons, constantly reminding your child of the core values in which we are focusing.

This program will form the basis with our new Well Being Policy which now needs to be further developed. There will be a section of our newsletter, each week, dedicated to PBL so please support us by reinforcing our school focus areas at home.

Each week we will add a link to the lesson which has been taught in PBL so all families can review what the children have learned in PBL that week. We hope that all families take the opportunity to reinforce these elements of Respect at home. PBL will be continually referred to in our weekly newsletters as well so all families are familiar with the values we are targeting as a part of this program.
