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 Henderson College’s ethos, curriculum, behavioural strategy and student acknowledgment system. The outcome of these initiatives ensures 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
