SOAR at Nayland College

The Nayland College SOAR values system is based on the principles of the School Wide Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) scheme.  PB4L School-Wide looks at behaviour and learning from a whole-of-school as well as an individual child perspective. The framework is based on international evidence. 

The Positive Behaviour for Learning School-Wide framework, otherwise known as PB4L School-Wide, is helping New Zealand schools build a culture where positive behaviour and learning is a way of life. The framework can be tailored to your school’s own environment and cultural needs. 

It’s not about changing the students; it’s about changing the environment, systems and practices you have in place to support them to make positive behaviour choices.
