Positive Behaviour for Learning

Creating a safe and supportive learning environment through Positive Behaviour for Learning.

Our four school values of "I care for myself, I care for learning, I care for others and I care for my school" are the embedded foundations maintaining a safe, supportive and disciplined learning environment at Undurba State School. The school has developed and established a comprehensive Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students which is based on the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) philosophy. Included within this framework is the High 5 and REBOOT philosophy and curriculum which is explicitly taught in every classroom for students to use when responding to challenges. Our Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students outlines our system for facilitating positive behaviours, preventing problem behaviours and responding to unacceptable behaviours. Durby, a fabulous and well-behaved golden coloured dog is the mascot of our PBL program and promotes excellence in upholding our values and the safe respectful behaviour of our students.

This common language is embedded in every classroom and team to ensure the learning behaviours and expectations are consistent across the school.

Every classroom has the following expectations for students:

  • I care for myself
  • I care for learning
  • I care for others
  • I care for my school.

The school operates a Positive Behaviour for Learning professional learning team which meets each month to discuss school based behavioural data, establish behaviour focuses for explicit teaching each week and review/update Positive Behaviour for Learning operations and processes across the school. The school has developed a comprehensive Positive Behaviour for Learning action plan which is actioned, monitored and reviewed each month by the PBL committee.

The school has a number of staff members specifically dedicated to supporting student behaviour, well-being and mental health. These include a Guidance Officer onsite (three days per week); PBL Teacher (3 days per week); and a P&C endorsed part time Chaplain (three days per week). The Chaplain is funded through the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program in partnership with community funding. Despite being a very large school, external and internal feedback is that the school has a “positive” culture which is embedded in the daily operations of our school and which assists new children to the school in feeling supported.

Undurba State School provides a supportive school environment where each classroom operates on the premise that teachers have the right to teach and students have the right to learn in a safe and supportive environment.
