Positive Behaviour for Learning


Pine Rivers Special School has a Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students which has been approved by the Principal, the President of the P&C Association and the Regional Director.

Our school is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school, that has adopted the Team Teach philosophy to underpin our interactions with students.
Our Matrix of Expected Behaviours has been developed for each of these rules and is represented visually in each teaching area of the school. These Expected Behaviours are explicitly taught and reinforced regularly.
At Pine Rivers Special School, our students are:
  • Safe,
  • Proud,
  • Co-operative,
  • Friendly,
  • Learners.



All state schools are required to have a Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students, which articulates the school’s expectations of behaviour and its approach to developing appropriate behaviour. This plan has been approved by the principal, P & C President and the Assistant Regional Director of the North Coast Region.
