Positive Behaviour for Learning

All students are explicitly taught our school rules; At Kellyville PS I will:

Be respectful

Be safe

Be a learner.


The implementation of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) underpins our Student Welfare policies and procedures. PBL is a broad range of systematic and individualised strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing inappropriate behaviours.


The explicit teaching of PBL expectations is implemented for school wide, non -classroom and classroom settings. Targeted interventions are also introduced on a needs basis.


Kellyville Public School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school. The three school rules are: Be Respectful Be Safe, Be a Learner. There are 3 levels of awards: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Awards are given to students demonstrating appropriate behaviours in each category. The whole school reward system operates on an annual basis. Each student has the opportunity each year to earn a Gold Award.

Akuna Awards are distributed by all members of staff who catch students "being good", that is, students exhibiting expected behaviours in non-classroom settings eg the playground, hall, assembly lines. The class who accumulates the most awards throughout a term (1 class for K-2; 1 class for 3-6) receives a reward.

Class Achievement Awards are announced at the K-2 and 3-6 fortnightly Wednesday Assembly. These awards are given for achievement in learning or for demonstration of expected behaviours in the classroom.
