Behaviour hubs lead school and MAT application

Closed 30 Mar 2020

Opened 28 Feb 2020


In light of the latest public health measures and current pressures schools are facing, we have decided to introduce a second opportunity to apply to become a lead school or MAT for the behaviour hubs programme later in the year.

Applications submitted in this current window (closing 30 March) will be considered alongside those received in the subsequent window, later in the year.

Please download and read the application guidance at the bottom of this page under ‘RELATED’ before submitting an application. The guidance sets out more detail about the programme and the eligibility criteria which all schools and MATs must meet in order to apply.

We are looking for schools and MATs with exemplary behaviour cultures to join the behaviour hubs programme to support schools and spread good practice

In advance of the programme launch in September 2020, we are looking to appoint approximately 20 exemplary lead behaviour schools from across primary, secondary, special and alternative provision sectors.   

We are also looking for 2 to 3 multi-academy trusts (MATs) with excellent behaviour management willing to support other trusts.    

If selected as a lead school or MAT, you will have the opportunity to share your culture and practices, and make a difference in spreading excellent behaviour in schools around the country. 

We are accepting applications for lead schools and MATs until midday on 30 March.
