In 2012 we embarked on a journey to introduce a Postive Behaviour for Learning framework to our school. Positive Behaviour for Learning or “PBL” is a broad range of systemic and individualised strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behaviour.
At St John the Apostle Narraweena, we believe all students, their families and staff have a right to be a part of a safe, nurturing and respectful learning environment.
Therefore we have a shared responsibility to build a community of strength and gentleness through teaching, fostering, promoting and encouraging positive behaviours and Catholic values.
At St John the Apostle Narraweena we show Strength and Gentleness by being…
RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, SAFE, Learners …
PBL Consequence Development
We use our Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL) expected behaviours to show we are Respectful, Responsible and Safe Learners at St John’s.
We have reward systems in place to support children to show these behaviours;
SMILE awards, merit awards, in class reward systems, as well as praise and acknowledgement.
We also support the development of Social and Emotional Learning Skills through KidsMatter, our PDHPE modules, Peer Support, and in our day to day teaching and interactions.
But…. Sometimes children need additional support to follow our expected behaviours, so the Year 6 students, and the teachers, have developed the following Behaviour Consequence Matrix.
