The Behaviour Hubs programme provides senior leadership teams with tailored support, training and advice to improve behaviour culture and generate lasting change.
Launched in 2020 and funded by the Department for Education, Behaviour Hubs is open to all schools including primary and secondary, special schools and alternative provisions. Schools welcomed onto the programme receive a grant of up to £9,000 upon completion.
The programme is founded on the principles outlined by Tom Bennett OBE in his independent behaviour review, ‘Creating a Culture: How School Leaders Can Optimise Behaviour’.
"A student’s experience in school remains one of the most insightful indicators of later life success… For many, it is the best chance they will ever have to flourish. How they conduct themselves at school is crucial to that experience. Helping them develop good behaviour is therefore one of the most important tasks a school faces."
Tom Bennett, Lead Behaviour Adviser to the Department for Education
The Behaviour Hubs programme supports School Leaders by helping them to create calm, safe and supportive environments.
We match ‘Partner’ Schools that want and need to improve their behaviour culture with a ‘Lead’ School that has an exemplary track record in behaviour culture. This collaboration helps Partner Schools to diagnose issues and implement new behaviour approaches.
Additionally, Schools will receive evidence-informed training and access to resources created and delivered by a team of expert advisers.
