Positive behaviours

Our school is committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment for all students. Students can reach their full educational potential only when they are happy, healthy and safe, and when there is a positive school culture to engage and support them in their learning. 

At Somerville Rise we promote Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL) by introducing, modelling, teaching and continually reinforcing the positive and social behaviours that are important in order to be a successful learner.

PBL at Somerville Rise is used to improve social, emotional, behavioral and academic outcomes of all students and is aligned with the School Wide Positive Behaviors Support framework. We believe that when PBL is implemented well, teachers and students have more time to focus on relationships and classroom instruction.
