Positive Behaviour for Learning

Rowland Hassall School promotes a strong Positive Behaviour for Learning approach to education. Students and teachers embraced the goal of our students becoming Safe, Respectful Learners and this has formed part of the Rowland Hassall School ethos over the past four years.

The message that all students take from this is that being safe and respectful will assist you in becoming a diligent learner.

Short targeted skill streaming lessons are held daily as consistent reminders of expected behaviours and positive strategies when dealing with difficult or unfamiliar situations.
