Positive Behaviour for Learning
Be safe, be respectful, be a learner
Highfields State School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school which brings together the whole school community to contribute to developing a positive, safe and supportive learning culture. The framework assists schools to improve social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for children and young people. PBL uses preventative, teaching and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful and durable behaviour outcomes.
PBL schools understand that problem behaviour serves a purpose for their students. The fastest way to turn problem behaviour around, is by teaching them acceptable and appropriate ways to get what they need.
Positive Behaviour for Learning at Highfields State School
At Highfields State School, weekly expectations are taught by the classroom teacher. The weekly expectation and the classroom expectations are displayed on the Classroom Behaviour Wall. These expectations are positively reinforced with our Eager Eagle tokens. Staff hand out these tokens and positive affirmations to students who are following the school expectations. Students place their tokens into the year level Eager Eagle box. An Eager Eagle from each year level is drawn out at assembly each week. The winners choose from the Rewards Menu. Weekly certificates are also awarded to students who follow the behaviour expectations.
