PB4L - Positive Behaviour For Learning

The REACH Programme focuses on Values and Virtues Puni School wishes to emphasize with our students. The programme is on-going but a session is set aside every Friday morning to teach the specifics or areas of emphasis.

 Puni School has set the following expectations for our pupils:

R             = Respect yourself, others and property

E             = Eyes and Ears for Learning

A             = Act safely, immediately and willingly

C             = Challenge yourself

H             = Have control of your actions

 REACH is aspirational and fits within our school symbol the giraffe and all that we do at Puni School.  We are following the Positive Behaviour for Learning Programme (PB4L) which emphasizes great behaviour for all so that learning is maximized.

 ·        At staff meetings we will organise the value or virtue to be taught over a two week period and to be rewarded at School Assemblies.

·      A Class Compliment Chart augments the REACH Programme. The organisation and management of the chart is over to each teacher but generally the chart has spaces to collect ‘tokens’ for demonstration of REACH values and virtues. As an example, our school focus could be upon ‘Responsibility.’ As a member of the class (or the class itself) shows this virtue, congratulations are signified by the pacing of a token upon the Compliment Chart. Once all of the token spaces are completed the class earns a reward. (negotiated as a class before the Compliment Chart has begun.) This could be a pop-corn party and a DVD, an afternoon of Art or Sport, a trip to a local destination, ice-creams all round etc.

·         The Compliment Chart should take many weeks to complete.
