At St Bernadette's we strive to create a positive school environment for all students. PBS4L is a whole school approach that aims to develop a positive, safe and supportive learning culture. PBS4L is a framework that seeks to improve the social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for all students.

At St Bernadette's we have the following whole school expectations:

  • I am a Learner
  • I am Responsible
  • I am Respectful
  • I am Safe

We achieve this by:

  • having whole school expectations
  • having whole school processes and procedures
  • teaching students what our whole school expectations and associated behaviours
  • supporting students who require additional help to implement positive behaviours
  • conducting regular staff professional learning
  • communicating with families so they are equiped to support the school's expectations
  • using student behaviour data to inform decisions and responses

At St Bernadette's we support positive student behaviour by:

  • acknowledging and rewarding individual positive behaviour
  • acknowledging and rewarding whole class positive behaviour
  • acknowledging learning and social excellence with awards
  • acknowledging consistent positive behaviour with our whole school Student Award structure
