Families are important members of the school community. They have valuable insights and information about how their children learn best and what help they need.

 

The more families are involved in a school’s Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) process, the more successful it will be for children and young people.

 

Communicating regularly with families about their children’s activities, lessons, projects and celebrations will them better understand and support the PBL process.

 

Benefits of family involvement in PBL 

  • school staff can help families support their children and young people at home in learning and developing academic, social-emotional and behavioural skills.
  • families learn how to use similar strategies at home for teaching and supporting their children's social and behaviour skills
  • School staff encourage family members to connect with the school and be involved in ways that support both the school and family.
