Positive Behaviour for Learning

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a whole school approach with a strong emphasis on teaching appropriate behaviours and providing systems of support to reinforce positive behaviours for learning and building relationships.  

Our school nurtures the positive behaviours of being courteous, responsible, aspiring learners. The positive behaviours are underpinned by Gospel Values which resonate with the behavioural expectations and appropriate student behaviours that contribute to the functioning of our school as a safe and supportive learning environment.  

The positive behaviour for learning contribute to the functioning of our school as a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment. Students at St Thomas Catholic Primary School are taught, encouraged and supported to demonstrate these expected behaviours. 

 At St Thomas’ it is believed that teaching students what is expected of them and rewarding students for meeting those expectations is a positive approach in nurturing positive behaviour for learning and relationships.  

The purpose of a school-wide Positive Behaviour for Learning  approach which involves students, school staff and the parent community is to establish a collective positive learning culture.
