PB4L - Positive Behaviour For Learning
In 2020, as part of our strategic plan for this year, we've reviewed and updated our behaviour management processes in alignment with TĀWHA or PB4L. It's important that all students, whānau, staff and community share in the management of our plan, that we hope to review and update regularly to ensure that student behavioural and learning needs are catered for throughout their learning journey.

The following tikanga are taught and learnt in and out of classrooms at our kura. Kaiako and kaiāwhina are committed to ensuring that all tamariki adhere to the same set of learning experiences throughout their educational journey at Te Kura o Te Teko. Expectations are simple, clear and practiced daily.
As part of our TĀWHA behaviour management strategy "kaupapa whakawhiwhinga reward system" our students are awarded certificates each week for situations where students are seen to demonstrate tikanga ā-kura school practices based around our uara kura school values - TE manaakitanga, TE tauakitanga and KOtahitanga. These acknowledgements are added together where students reap further rewards at Friday hui ā-kura school assembly.
