Positive Behaviour for Learning

Positive Behaviour for Learning, known as PBL, provides a framework for the whole school community to collectively support the wellbeing of every student. PBL is an evidence-based whole school systems approach where positive social expectations are developed, established and consistently reinforced throughout the school community.

PBL is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. It was developed in America approximately 15 years ago and is now being implemented in DET regions across NSW. Queanbeyan Public School is implementing this program across the entire school.

Each student at Queanbeyan Public School has been explicitly taught correct behaviours in each area of the school. Students are then positively rewarded with ‘splash tickets' for exhibiting the correct behaviour on the playground. This promotes positive feelings and thoughts about their behaviour rather than focusing on student behaviours.

At Queanbeyan Public School we collaborate with our community to create a safe and inclusive environment that encourages responsible, respectful and resilient learners.
