Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) is an educational approach to addressing student conduct within a school environment. By implementing evidence based, prevention focused interventions, improved academic and behavioural outcomes can be achieved. PB4L initiatives are evident throughout Nunawading Christian College’s ethos, curriculum, behavioural strategy and student acknowledgement system. The outcome of these initiatives ensure students are offered effective support strategies in order to make positive behavioural choices and are acknowledged for positive conduct, effort and behaviour. A safe and effective teaching and learning environment results.
PB4L is a school wide approach that is based on the Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports framework developed at the University of Oregon. The implementation of PB4L:
- Reduces behavioural incidents
- Increases teaching and learning time
- Improves student achievement
