Behaviour Leadership Programme

The Behaviour Leadership Programme is designed to support settings to further enhance their behaviour practices. By drawing on expert research and practitioners, it explores how changes in behavioural approaches can better support the needs of the whole school and wider communities. The needs and challenges of each of our settings is different and this programme is designed to meet you where you are on your journey to improving behaviour in your setting. 

Our 2024 programme is fully subscribed however if you’d like to discuss support for behaviour leadership please contact the Wellbeing team.


What are the benefits of working with HFL to improve your behaviour management in school?

The support we provide for behaviour management within your school or setting is designed to improve staff confidence in how they respond to unproductive behaviours, enabling them to intervene in the right way at the right time.

Our behaviour management support is strategic and inclusive, which enables schools to adopt and embed approaches to best suit the needs of staff, pupils and their wider communities.

We focus on encouraging a growth mindset, self-efficacy, and self-regulation and resilience through wellbeing approaches to support effective learning and achieve the right outcome through a class coaching process

It was a good opportunity to highlight the strengths and identify what was working well, and receive support and strategies to move the school forward.  I felt listened to and felt the adviser had a good understanding of my school, staff, and children.   The advice was very good and I'm certain to put things into practice as I continue to work on our school priorities.

Overall, a helpful course, with a really positive overtone. I came away feeling that I could make good changes without feeling overloaded.

Anon – Building Positive Behaviour through Trusted Relationships

[Advisers] are empowering staff to lead on changing the environment and routines...  It is definitely having an impact on the behaviours and the staff ability to effectively manage and work with those behaviours. They are very enthusiastic about what they can do and have put a number of your ideas in place quickly.
