Positive behaviour for learning

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a comprehensive, integrated whole school approach to student wellbeing and behaviour.

PBL is a process that supports school leadership teams to create positive learning environments that enable student learning and wellbeing.

Successful implementation of PBL is underpinned by the support and commitment of the whole school community. 

PBL is based on a three-tiered continuum of prevention and intervention:

  • Tier 1 - Universal prevention: school-wide and classroom systems for all students, staff and settings.
  • Tier 2 - Targeted interventions: small group systems for students at-risk behaviourally and academically.
  • Tier 3 - Intensive interventions: systems for students with high-risk behaviour and/or learning needs.
