PB4L - Positive Behaviour for Learning

At Rosebank School we deliberately model, teach, recognise, expect and value positive behaviours and respectful relationships. We provide a nurturing environment where the individual is valued and students are encouraged to strive for excellence in all areas.

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.”

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.

It’s not about changing the students; it’s about changing the environment, systems and practices you have in place to support them to make positive behaviour choices.
