Positive Behaviour for Learning in practice.
All areas of Salisbury State School are learning and teaching environments. We consider the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) framework to be an opportunity for valuable social learning as well as a means of maximising the success of student learning programs.
PBL forms part of the Student Code of Conduct that outlines our system for facilitating positive behaviours and responding to inappropriate and unacceptable behaviours. Through our school plan, shared expectations for student behaviour are plain to everyone, assisting Salisbury State School to create and maintain a positive and productive learning and teaching environment, where ALL school community members have clear and consistent expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.
Our school community has identified the following school expectations to teach and promote our high standards of responsible behaviour:
Care for self
Care for others
Care for learning
These four expectations are used at Salisbury State School to guide the development of children and foster self-discipline. They provide a framework for all in the school community.
Below are some behavioural examples for students across the school to uphold the PBL expectations of Salisbury State School. Each classroom will have their own targeted examples, developed at the beginning of the year and reviewed throughout, to help students and visitors understand the expectations and meet the standards we hold for everyone at Salisbury State School.
