    The Department for Education in New South Wales has published a new student behaviour strategy, which places focus upon early intervention, increased support and professional learning to assist teachers’ classroom management and student behaviour needs.

    Three key areas are highlighted within the plan:

    • Providing additional professional learning and enhanced tools to build school workforce’s capability and confidence to support and manage student behaviour
    • Ensuring easier access to additional allied health and professional behaviour support services for schools
    • Implementing a new state-wide team of 36 behaviour specialists to provide advice, coordination and case management of complex cases

    Maybo perspective

    Schools can become extremely pressured, stressful environments that can cause pupils, parents or even staff to act out of character. If poorly managed, minor incidents can quickly escalate into aggressive and challenging behaviour, which can represent a safety risk to staff and pupils, so we welcome the government’s focus on behaviour.

    Our comprehensive training curriculum aims to provide staff with effective policies, controls, awareness and skills that help to prevent and manage challenging behaviours in order to create a conducive learning environment.

    From positive communication skills, to how best to support children with additional needs, we work to understand the needs and requirements of schools and develop bespoke training programmes that will help to create long-lasting positive change. Through this, we can create positive and safer learning environments.
