Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)
Durack State School uses Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) as the multi-tiered system of support for discipline in the school. This is a whole-school approach, used in all classrooms and programs offered through the school, including sporting activities and excursions.
PBL is an evidence-based framework used to:
- analyse and improve student behaviour and learning outcomes
- promote evidence-based practices to be used correctly by teachers to support students
- continually support staff members to maintain consistent school and classroom improvement practices.
PBL Purpose Statement for Durack State School:
AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY, ENCOURAGE OUR STUDENTS TO BE SAFE, RESPECTFUL LEARNERS.
Our school community has identified three core Schoolwide Behaviour Expectations (Dragon Expectations), to promote and teach high standards of responsible behaviour. Durack Dragons are Safe, Respectful Learners.
Student Code of Conduct
Durack State School is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for all students, staff, parents and visitors.
The Student Code of Conduct
sets out the responsibilities and processes we use in our school to promote a productive, effective whole school approach to discipline.
Its purpose is to facilitate high standards of behaviour from all in the school community, ensuring learning and teaching in our school is prioritised, where all students are able to experience success and staff enjoy a safe workplace. Consequences for making poor choices is a part of life. Sheltering children from consequences does them no favours. Lessons learned now may save children from more serious consequences later in life. It is essential that we work together to solve problems through respectful conversations.
