The £10 million investment announced on 4 May 2019, will enable schools to share best practice on behaviour and classroom management. Behaviour support networks will be made up of schools that have exemplary behaviour management practices and effective whole-school cultures. They will work with other schools offering advice on ways to better manage behaviour using measures that have been effective in successful schools.

Decisions on where these networks will be set up will be via an open application process to recruit suitable lead schools who can demonstrate their behaviour expertise and capacity to work with a small group of other schools to improve. The Department will provide more detail on the application process in the autumn term to enable the first behaviour support networks to be in place for September 2020.
