Positive Behaviours for Learning


Gordon Primary School is a PBL school. PBL stands for Positive Behaviour for Learning. PBL is an evidence-based, whole school approach that supports students to become successful learners through setting clear expectations and explicit teaching of positive behaviours.

Our school wide PBL expectations are:

Our school wide expectations are to be followed by everyone, all of the time. We also have some expectations for specific settings, such as the library, hall, playgrounds, toilets etc. These are outlined in signs arounds the school.

An important part of PBL at Gordon is acknowledging students’ positive behaviour which meets our school expectations. Students are acknowledged in number of ways including verbally and with PBL awards.
