Student Welfare is an important part of providing an environment conducive to learning for all, which assists students to become self directed and life long learners who can create a positive future for themselves and for the wider community.

Maroubra Junction Public School uses the Positive Behaviour for Learning, known as PBL is an evidence- based whole school systems approach that: 

  • addresses the diverse academic and social needs of every student to support them to be successful
  • supports students in early childhood settings through to senior years of schooling
  • enables schools to establish  a continuum of supports that are intensified to meet the needs of every student
  • is team driven, using a problem solving approach (data, systems and practices) that engages students, parents and all school staff
  • establishes positive social expectations for all in the school community
  • provides a framework for the school and its community to collectively support the wellbeing of every student.

When implemented well:

  • students respond positively as they have been taught what is expected of them
  • staff deliver consistent responses to student learning and behaviour
  • students feel safe and cared for at school. Their parents, family and community are more involved in their school
  • unproductive and challenging behaviour can be significantly reduced for most students.
