PH4L - Positive HERO for Learning

At Cambridge Middle School, we follow the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) Restorative Practice approach. We have renamed it PH4L as our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) approach is centered around our core HERO values: Happiness, Excellence, Relationships, and Opportunity.

This model emphasizes building and maintaining positive, respectful relationships throughout our kura and community. Our kaiako and staff are trained in the best practices to help maintain and restore relationships when needed.

By fostering these positive and respectful relationships between staff, students, and our whānau community, we can better address any issues that may arise. Whether it's changes in a tamariki's behaviour or progress, we believe in working closely with you, our valued whānau and caregivers, to ensure the best support for our learners.

We recognise the importance of this partnership and will be in touch with you if we have any concerns about your tamariki. Together, we can make decisions about the best way to support your child's success.
