Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) has a strong research base and has been shown to improve student outcomes, increase staff and student
wellbeing, and reduce behavioural incidents. PBL helps schools to select evidence-based practices which have
been shown to improve student behaviour and establish safe and supportive learning environments.
At Berrinba East State School, the following key resources are used to support the implementation of PBL across the school -
Reboot - this is an approach designed to teach emotional literacy and metacognition.
The Resilience Project - this program explicitly teaches the skills of Gratitude, Mindfulness and Empathy (Kindness).
4 Dimensions of Classroom Practice - these are the skills and strategies staff use to manage behaviour at a whole class level.
PBL Matrix and Lesson of the Week - This is the explicit teaching and reinforcing of a school wide targeted skill or behaviour.
Positive Acknowledgement Systems - This is a consistent, school wide approach to acknowledge and celebrate positive behaviour.
More information on PBL at Berrinba East State School can be found in the Berrinba East State School Code of Student Conduct.
