At our school behaviour management is based on a Restorative Practice model.  The PB4L ( Positive Behaviour for Learning) practice model is underpinned by four key principles:

  • Positive interpersonal relationships are a major influence on behaviour.
  • A culture of care supports the mana of all individuals in our school community.
  • Cultural responsiveness is key to creating learning communities of mutual respect and inclusion.
  • A restorative approach leads to individual taking responsibility for their own behaviour.

Fostering positive, respectful  relationships with young people can have a profound impact on their overall behaviour, learning and achievement outcomes. By viewing ' problems as problems' rather than 'people as problems', people can talk with each other in respectful ways that support their responsibility and their accountability.
