We are a PBL school

Positive behaviour for learning

Be Safe | Be Respectful | Be Responsible

At Parkes High School, we are currently using the positive behaviour for learning (PBL) system which has a school wide set of expectations. Our expectations at Parkes High School are that we are safe, respectful and responsible in all that we do.

PBL helps to build environments that encourage and promote academic achievement and social competence while preventing problem behaviour. The idea behind PBL is that it will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning.

PBL involves the explicit teaching of appropriate behaviour and we address this through our PBL focuses. This year our focuses have so far been entering and exiting the classroom in a safe, respectful and responsible way, and using respectful language always. Lining up in alphabetical order on assembly quickly and quietly is also something that students should now be very familiar with.

To recognise positive and appropriate behaviour, points are given out regularly throughout the term for those students that meet the expectations of our focuses.
