Encourage Positive Behaviours

Positive behaviour can be learnt. To help students develop this, create a safe and caring environment that supports learning positive behaviour.

Tips for success:

Kia mahi tahi – work as a team, learn as a team.

Show children and young people you care, you believe in them, you trust them. Set high, realistic expectations and believe they will rise to these

Involve whānau and family who often know best their children or young people - doing so increases your chances of connecting.

Remember, children and young people don’t always know how to behave – teach consistently, practice regularly, and reinforce positively the behaviour you want to see. Provide foundations for all children and young people to learn and succeed, and make sure the systems at your school or centre support positive behaviour.

Keep in mind the quiet ones for they need the same positive attentions as the outspoken ones. Engage with and play with them often
