Positive Behaviour for Learning

Behaviour code for students - NSW public schools


Behaviour and Engagement - Anti-bullying



Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a schoolwide behaviour initiative currently in schools across NSW. It employs a whole school systems approach to address problem behaviour and reduce its effects on student outcomes and on the school community as a whole. PBL encourages positive behaviour from students, which has been shown to improve their self-concept and motivation to learn.

When PBL is effective, a safe and supportive learning environment is provided for all students. Students and staff benefit from:

  • increased academic instructional time for students
  • improved social climate of the school
  • increased numbers of students displaying positive behaviours
  • support for students, teachers and families which is matched to their needs
  • systems that support an instructional approach
  • consistent delivery of effective programs and practices that are sustained over time.

At Lennox Head Public school our Three key Values are: Respect, Responsibility and Integrity. Each week we focus on a different aspect of our school environment and what we need to learn in regard to our school's values: How to be respectful. responsible and use integrity. We also have a classroom focus which can be seen in every classroom.
