Positive Behaviour for Learning: Meaningful Home/School Engagement
June 27, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Have you heard of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L)?
Has your child’s school mentioned a Positive Behaviour Plan?
“Behaviour” is a focus of discussion for many parents and educators, and can be a source of considerable angst and concern. Where behaviour is not well understood and students do not receive appropriate support, it can undermine student engagement in learning. To achieve successful inclusion, it is critical that families and schools achieve productive conversations towards approaches which support rather than punish or exclude.
In this presentation, we will discuss the ways schools use PB4L to support student behaviour, engagement, and learning. Suggestions for how schools and families could meaningfully engage will also be discussed. This presentation is appropriate for parents who have their child enrolled, or soon to enrol, in a Government, Catholic or Independent school.
