In 2015 St Therese’s School has embarked on a new program of student management called Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL)

 What is PBL?

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a whole school program that actively promotes positive behaviour. It enables students to develop a clear understanding of required expectations, become responsible for their own behaviour and work together to create a positive, productive and harmonious learning community. Our school-wide expectations are represented with a bee: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be a Learner. 

PBL is a data driven program. Therefore, what we learn from the data, such as, specific inappropriate behaviours which we need to address, affects what we do throughout the school in PBL. Each week, the school will have an area of focus that involves explicit teaching and support of positive behaviours. Teachers and students will participate in lessons that involve discussion, role-play and reflection. It is important for the students to be able to identify what each behaviour looks like, feels like and sounds like, so that they can respond appropriately to requests and directions.

Our school-wide PBL focus defines our expectations for all settings at St Therese’s Catholic Primary School.
