Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)


Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL) is a framework for classroom and behaviour management in schools that explicitly models, promotes and rewards positive behaviours while providing consistent structures in responding to negative behaviours. In doing so, Positive Behaviours for Learning is intended to devote teacher behaviour management more proportionately to behaviours that should occur and not disproportionately to behaviours that should not.

Additional focuses of PBL include ongoing student wellbeing as well as building whole school identity and morale. It also embeds restorative justice actions in response to negative behaviours. This document aims to explicitly set out the Positive Behaviours for Learning Framework that has been developed for St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, Wallsend.

It is hoped that in providing this framework to parents, they can familiarise themselves with the philosophy, procedures, actions, and shared language.
