Positive Behaviour for Learning

At Byron Bay Public School, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop.

Our core values are Respectful, Responsible and Fair.

Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students. We tie our positive reward system and behaviour management into these three core values.

A new focus is introduced each fortnight. The focus will be displayed throughout the school and explicit lessons taught to all students in their classrooms. Each fortnight the focus will be advertised in the newsletter. Focus will include: expectations for areas around the school, such as classrooms, canteen, library, COLA and playground. You can support this program at home through discussions with your children.

These lessons explicitly teach students expectations for identified areas around the school.

Our aims for PBL at Byron Bay Public School:

  • To explicitly teach our core values to all staff and students
  • To have all teachers consistently reinforcing positive expectations
  • To increase positive behaviour entries across the whole school


Below is an example of PBL poster and lesson plan.
