At Arcadia Public School we practise Positive Behaviour Engaging Learning principles. PBEL provides an operational framework of the best evidence-based practices for improving academic and behavioural outcomes for all students.
Our PBEL program is based on a school-wide set of three clear values and expectations which apply across the school in every circumstance and setting. These are known as The Arcadian Way.
Teachers issue 'minis' recognising and encouraging students’ successful practice of these expectations. These are frequent and tangible rewards accompanied by verbal praise. Students collect their minis into a personal awards book which is maintained as a record of the positive behaviours they have demonstrated throughout the year. Students’ progress through the following levels :
Bronze Levels = 25 / 50 / 75 Silver Levels = 100 / 125/ 150 Gold Level = 175
Principals Award = 200
