Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is an evidence-based framework that brings together the whole-school community to contribute to developing a positive, safe and supportive learning culture. The framework assists Young North Public School to improve social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for students.
When PBL is implemented well, teachers and students have more time to focus on relationships and classroom instruction. Students and staff benefit from:
reduced inappropriate behaviour
increased time focused on instruction
improved social-emotional wellbeing
positive and respectful relationships among students and staff
support for teachers to teach, model and respond effectively to student need
a predictable learning environment where staff and students know what is expected to deliver effective practices that can be sustained over time
The PBL framework supports Young North Public School to identify and successfully implement evidenced-based whole-school practices that enhance learning outcomes for students.
This is achieved by using the framework to strengthen systems within the school such as, structures, and processes that underpin ongoing school improvement and the effectiveness of all school members. For example, the school strengthens its use of school-wide data to identify patterns of problem behaviour, monitor student progress, reflect on teaching effectiveness and inform decisions that strengthen the learning environment.
