Behaviour Support Planning

A Behaviour Support Plan is necessary when problematic and challenging behaviours are persistent and occur in a range of contexts across the school day or when a student’s behaviour impedes their learning or that of others. A Behaviour Support Plan is also necessary when a student’s behaviour presents a risk to the safety, learning and wellbeing of themselves or others.

The overall purpose of the Behaviour Support Plan is to ensure that the student is explicitly taught the skills to maintain appropriate social relationships and to learn in the classroom and across the school context. It outlines and describes the behaviours of concern, identifies the triggers or contributors to the occurrence (antecedents) of the behaviour and assists the school to determine the approaches and strategies to change the behaviour.
