Positive Behaviour for Learning
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a framework for improving behaviour competence and academic achievement of all
is an organised framework for identifying, adopting and applying evidenced
based practices for building and supporting academic and social success for all
students. PBL provides opportunities for students to develop the social and
emotional skills needed to succeed in life.
PBL is an
evidence-based whole school process to improve learning outcomes for all
PBL provides a learning approach to teach students expected social behaviour
and, when implemented with integrity, it is an effective strategy for
preventing school-based behaviour problems including violence and bullying. Teaching and supporting pro-social behaviour
skills creates student effective teaching and learning environments that enable
students to be healthy, happy, successful and productive.
applies data-based decision making to enable teachers to tailor their
individual PBL strategies to suit individual students and classes. From this individual, differentiated approach
to social skills training for students, an overall improvement of student
behaviours, increased academic success, and increased emotional intelligence is
developed. For teachers, this means more instructional time. A win – win for
both students and teachers.
