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
