What is Positive
Behaviour for Learning?
Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is an
evidence-based, data driven, school-wide approach for behaviour. It focuses on
the explicit teaching and reinforcement of behavioural expectations, based on
the four school values, Always Respectful, Always Responsible, Always Safe and
At Allora P-10 State School we create a positive
learning environment which enables all students to achieve their personal best
in all settings.
Why do we do PBL?

and challenging behaviour can be significantly reduced through targeting
and encouraging positive behaviours.
support and interventions are developed to reduce the incidences of
persistent negative behaviour.
How does PBL work?
- Rules and
expectations for behaviour are very clearly set out for each area of the
school and will be visible, in the form of signs and symbols in classrooms
and out in the grounds.
members are consistent, meaning that processes for managing students who
break school rules should be the same right across the school.
rules and expectations are taught explicitly on assembly each week,
and reinforced in the classroom and playground so that all students are
aware of the rules across all areas of the school and that they understand
what these rules actually mean.
- A PBL Reward
System is established ensuring students receive free and frequent
encouragers, as well as short and long term rewards.
Behaviour data is regularly
analysed by the PBL team and used to inform decisions regarding target
behaviours and interventions.
