Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL)

Providing systems of support to bring about positive behaviours.

St Agatha’s Catholic Primary School has adopted a Whole School Approach to bring about positive behaviour; Positive Behaviour for Learning [PBL]. This approach has a strong emphasis on teaching appropriate behaviours and providing systems of support to bring about these positive behaviours.

PBL is focused on proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviours to create positive school environments. The aim of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is to actively teach and reinforce desired behaviour while implementing consistent, reasonable and positive intervention to address challenging behaviours. Preserving and building child’s self esteem and image as well as encouraging self monitoring of behaviour are vital components of the positive behaviours for learning approach.

St Agatha’s Catholic School aims to provide a safe and supportive environment in which learning takes place.
