Charters Towers Central State School is a Positive Behaviour Learning school (PBL). Our school’s PBL motto is 'to create and foster a safe, respectful and accepting learning environment for the school community'. This motto is the driving culture behind our school.
PBL is an evidence-based framework for establishing the social culture needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students. PBL in not a program and therefore does not compete with programs. It is an organisational framework for identifying, adopting and applying evidence based practices for building and supporting academic and social success for all students.
PBL at Charters Towers Central State School ensures that all students have the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. PBL assists schools to teach students expected social behaviours.
This is the most effective response for preventing school-based behaviour problems including school violence and bullying. Teaching and supporting social behavioural skills to students creates student behavioural health and also contributes to academic support systems. SWPBL applies data-based decision-making to discipline, academics and social and emotional learning.
Charters Towers Central State School has three set rules that support PBL – I Am Safe, I am Respectful, and I am a Learner. These three rules are immersed throughout the school curriculum, playground and wider community.
