Positive Behaviour for Learning


Have you met B-Mer yet? B-Mer is our new PBL mascot, designed to remind students about our school rules- Respect, Responsibility and Excellence. You will see B-Mer up around the school reminding everyone in the school how to follow the school rules. Signs will also explain exactly how you can do this!



Positive Behaviour for Learning, also known as PBL is an evidence-based whole school systems approach that:

•Addresses the diverse academic and social needs of every student to support them to be successful

•Supports students in early childhood settings through to senior years of schooling

•Enables schools to establish a continuum of supports that are intensified to meet the needs of every student.

•Is team driven, using a problem solving approach (data, systems and practices) that engages students, parents and all school staff

•Establishes positive social expectations for all in the school community

•Provides a framework for the school and its community to collectively support the wellbeing of every student.

When implemented well:

•Students respond positively as they have been taught what is expected of them

•Staff delivers consistent responses to student learning and behaviour

•Students feel safe and cared for at school. Their parents, family and community are more involved in their school

•Unproductive and challenging behaviour can be significantly reduced for most students.



B-Mer Bucks are handed out to students who are showing that they are following the school rules. It may be in the classroom, in the playground, at the canteen or anywhere in the school setting. Students are able to purchase from a B-Mer menu and spend their hard earned B-Mer bucks.
