Positive Behaviour for Learning
In 2020 St Francis Xavier School will be involved in a program called Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL). PBL is an evidence-based whole school framework that actively promotes positive behaviour.
PBL includes … proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviours to create positive school environments … a continuum of positive behaviour support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses and restrooms)... (PBL) enhances the capacity of schools, families and communities to design effective environments …for learning and teaching. (https://www.pbis.org/school)
It enables students to develop a clear understanding of required expectations, to become responsible for their own behaviour and to work together to create a positive, productive and harmonious learning community. At this stage we are reviewing current practices in preparation for this exciting program.
