PB4L making big changes in schools

Issue: Volume 94, Number 16

Reference #: 1H9cuV

Eighty six percent of primary schools and 81 percent of secondary schools using Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) School-Wide reported a decrease in major incidents of bad behaviour.

Most schools also reported the programme had contributed to better school safety, students arriving on time, and a more respectful and inclusive school culture.

The independent report by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research was launched on 14 August.

PB4L School-Wide is helping New Zealand schools build a culture where positive behaviour and learning is a way of life. It looks at behaviour and learning from a whole-of-school as well as an individual child perspective, and can be tailored to schools’ individual environments and cultural needs.

More than 600 schools around the country are now using PB4L School-Wide to make a difference for their students.

School-Wide is one of several PB4L initiatives that help parents, whānau, teachers, early childhood centres and schools address problem behaviour, improve children’s wellbeing and increase educational achievement.
