Tennyson Primary School


Behaviour Hub Lead School

Behaviour Hub

The Trust is delighted that Tennyson Road Primary School has been recognised for its strong positive behaviour culture and has been appointed as a Lead School in the Government’s Behaviour Hub programme. Following an application and interview process, the school has been selected for its exemplary management of pupil behaviour and track record for working with other schools. This means that Tennyson Road staff will provide one-to one support to a number of other schools helping them to make improvements.

The programme is about the strategies needed to support children to behave in ways that help them gain the most from school. For many pupils their school experience is the best chance they will ever have to flourish and helping them develop good behaviour is one of the most important tasks a school faces. We will be providing approximately 15-20 days of senior leadership time per academic year to support other schools and inviting other school leaders to regular open day events held at Tennyson Road.

The programme aims:

  • To help schools create a calm and orderly environment where pupils can learn without interference from others.

  • To provide schools with bespoke expert support and advice from senior leaders to help them improve pupil behaviour.

  • To provide one-to-one support and mentoring, including hosting termly open days, to share experiences and good practice.

  • To provide expert training and resources from Behaviour Advisers, all with in-school experience.

Open days

As a lead school, our behaviour team invites colleagues from the programme to visit Tennyson Road and see our therapeutic behaviour approach in practice. The day consists of a variety of educational workshops including:

  • Learning zones and why we use them
  • How the curriculum supports behaviour
  • Achieving consistency through a whole school approach

As part of the open day, we invite our guests to take part in a guided tour of the school in action too. 


Feedback from events 


 Great use of research and evidence based approaches.

Excellent to see modelling of good relationships between adults and children.

Linking behaviour to a strong PSHE curriculum now seems obvious! But a really helpful insight. 

Thank you so much, you are an extremely impressive staff team and you should be proud of everything you are doing for your children.
