DfE Behaviour Hubs scheme doubles in size

The Cabot Learning Federation and Begbrook Primary Academy have been chosen by the DFE to become Behaviour Hubs.

The programme pairs schools and MATs that have ‘exemplary’ behaviour practices with schools that want to improve behaviour

An extra 28 schools and eight multi-academy trusts (MATs) have been designated as lead schools and MATs as part of the Department for Education’s £10 million Behaviour Hubs scheme.

The scheme is designed to support schools with improving their culture and ethos, and specifically whole school behaviour approaches.

The criteria for achieving Behaviour Hub status are exacting and there was a process of application and interview. We have now started our training and we expect to start working with schools in brokered partnerships from April 2022.

Executive Principal Sally Apps said: “This provides us with a great opportunity to have a positive influence on the learning and school experiences of many hundreds of children beyond our trust – as well as providing challenge and support within our trust as we continue to work on behaviour across our schools. The MAT Behaviour Hub Team will be led by myself, Executive Principal Kate Richardson and Principal Tony Searle, and the CLF plan to work with colleagues at a range of levels in the trust to be able to develop and deliver this support.”
