Positive Behaviour for Learning believes:
Positive behaviour can be learnt and difficult and disruptive behaviour can be unlearnt.
Individual children are not a 'problem' - we need to change the environment around them to support positive behaviour.
Punishing and isolating children doesn't bring about long-term and sustainable changes in behaviour.
We need to concentrate on a small number of evidence-based programmes and frameworks that we know work.
There are no quick fixes. Behaviour change takes time.
