Positive Behaviour for Learning

Positive Behaviour Learning (PBL)

While we focus on your child's reading, writing and numeracy skills, a fundamental aspect of school success is also your child's physical, social and emotional development.

At Marayong Heights Public School, we provide a safe and nurturing environment where students become self aware and build positive relationships. This in turn leads to improved learning outcomes for all of our students.

Marayong Heights Public School utilises a PBL framework to promote a positive learning environment, in order to prepare our students of today to become leaders of tomorrow.

PBL provides a framework for the school and its community where together we support the wellbeing of every student. 

Students respond positively as they have been taught what is expected of them.

Staff deliver consistent responses to student learning and behaviour.

Students feel safe and cared for at school. The PBL framework builds positive adult—student relationships.

PBL Levels

How to move up the Positive Behaviour Levels: All students start the year on the Blue Level then progress up to Bronze level, Silver Level and finish on Gold Level. Students require a combination of 8 PBL awards to move up a level; this means 2 of each colour (category) and 2 extra. These awards can be issued by class, support, casual and playground teachers.

For the Bronze level, class teachers place students on Bronze once they have collected all eight awards. For Silver and Gold Levels, student’s names are written in the awards folder and require approval by the whole staff at weekly communication meetings. Bronze and Silver awards are presented at K-2 and 3-6 assemblies, and Gold awards are presented at Whole School Assemblies.
