Ipswich Special School has adopted Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) as the framework for Behaviour Management.
PBL is an evidence-based framework for establishing the social culture needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students.
PBL in not a program and therefore does not compete with programs. It is an organisational framework for identifying, adopting and applying evidence based practices for building and supporting academic and social success for all students. PBL ensures that all students have the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school and beyond.
PBL assists schools to teach students expected social behaviours. This is the most effective response for preventing school-based behaviour problems including school violence and bullying. Teaching and supporting social behavioural skills to students creates student behavioural health and also contributes to academic support systems.
PBL applies data-based decision-making to discipline, academics and social and emotional learning.
