Positive Behaviours for Learning

The goal of PB4L is to help parents/carers and school staff create and maintain a safe, supportive, learning environment, that promotes positive life skills and reduce negative behaviours, so that all children can succeed in school. The PB4L Framework focuses on building a positive environment for students and staff by establishing clear expectations for students and taking active, explicit steps in teaching, modelling and reinforcing appropriate behaviours school-wide.

This framework is an integral component of the CEDoW Student Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Policy, which articulates the need for schools to ‘play an active role in building a positive learning environment where the whole school community feels included, connected, safe and respected’.
