Behaviour management

Every state school has access to a specialist to assist them in the area of behaviour management.

Behaviour support specialist role includes:

  • Assisting all school staff with advice and strategies for student management and updates on regional policy/procedures
  • Supporting high needs students to manage their own behaviours better
  • Coordinating programs to promote positive behaviours, emotional intelligence, social skills and resiliency
  • Promoting whole school practices which support the above
  • Assisting families in dealing with challenging behaviours

Parent’s and Teacher’s attention is the most powerful, effective behaviour management tool we have. We need to give it at the right time. We need to give more attention to any positive behaviours - they will grow. Give less attention to the negative behaviours – they will reduce. It’s not about ignoring the negative but more attention to the positives.

We are currently working on including links to many helpful websites, support groups and information brochures in the area of behaviour support. We hope that parents will find some really useful information here.
