Positive Behaviour for Learning

In 2014, Reremoana School became part of the Ministry of Education's Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) contract. 
PB4L helps schools, teachers and parents across New Zealand to promote positive behaviour. PB4L is supported by eight education sector organisations and led by the Ministry of Education. 
The principles behind PB4L
Positive Behaviour for Learning believes:
  • positive behaviour can be learnt and difficult and disruptive behaviour can be unlearnt
  • individual children are not a ‘problem’ – we need to change the environment around them to support positive behaviour
  • punishing and isolating children doesn’t bring about long-term and sustainable changes in behaviour
  • we need to concentrate on a small number of evidence-based programmes and frameworks that we know work
  • there are no quick fixes. Behaviour change takes time.

The difference PB4L will make
  • Children and young people will be more engaged and will achieve at school.
  • Teachers and leaders will spend more time teaching and be less stressed.
  • Educators will keep more children and young people at school, will feel confident, and will feel supported in addressing behaviour problems.
  • Parents and whānau will have more positive relationships with their children and home life will be more positive and harmonious.
  • School leaders and Boards will celebrate the learning and achievement of all of their students.
