(Positive Behaviour for Learning)


We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning School. PB4L is all about teaching children the right behaviour, just like we teach any other subject at school.

“If a student does not know how to read, we teach

If a student does not know how to swim, we teach

If a student does not know how to multiply, we teach

If a student does not know how to behave, we teach.”

At ABS we plan to create a safe and supportive environment within our school community to build positive and respectful relationships that improve student progress and encourage independent and lifelong learning.

Through modelling, teaching, and acknowledging positive behaviours we provide a quality environment where the school community is focused on developing students who strive to "Be Brave, Be Strong, Be Borough".

PB4L School-Wide looks at behaviour and learning from a whole-of-school as well as an individual child perspective. The framework is based on international evidence.

The Positive Behaviour for Learning School-Wide framework, otherwise known as PB4L School-Wide, is helping New Zealand schools build a culture where positive behaviour and learning is a way of life. The framework is tailored to our school’s own environment and cultural needs.
