Positive behaviour for learning

What is positive behaviour for learning?

At Asquith Public School we aim  to foster an inclusive school environment that promotes respect and high expectations for all. Positive Behaviour for Learning, known as PBL. PBL is an evidence-based whole school systems approach that:

  • enables schools to establish a continuum of supports that are intensified to meet the needs of every student
  • addresses the diverse academic and social needs of every student to support them to be successful
  • 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 deliver consistent responses to student learning and behaviour

  • students feel safe and cared for at school.

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

Our logo

The lorikeet was selected as it is identifiable to the students. It is a bright and colourful bird that will attract student's attention, engage and remind them of Positive Behaviour for Learning values.

The lorikeet will be displayed around the school as a symbol and reminder to students of the Asquith Public School's values and expectations.

Our reward system

PBL focuses on positive reinforcement and recognising students when they are doing the right thing.  At Asquith our students can receive Lokie Cards in the classroom and playground when they are seen using out 3 core values, Pride, Respect and Responsibility and merit cards are handed out in our weekly assemblies. As students accumulate these rewards, they can use these to earn Ribbons and Achievement Awards, which then go on to earn them a School Medal. Please see the link below for more details.
