The behaviour hubs programme supports schools that want and need to turn around their behaviour culture. The programme pairs schools and multi-academy trusts (MATs) with exemplary behaviour practices, known as lead schools/MATs, with partner schools or MATs that have self- referred onto the programme. The programme is open to primary, secondary, alternative provision and special schools.
The aim is for the evaluation to assess the effectiveness of the behaviour hubs programme in achieving its strategic aim to improve and sustain behaviour culture and practice in schools, achieving benefits for schools, workforce, and pupils.
The evaluator will complete a formative and summative evaluation to:
- Assess whether the programme is effective in meeting strategic aims, objectives and expected outcomes and impacts.
- Assess, test and refine the programme logic model to understand why the intervention has worked (or not).
- Assess and collect evidence to understand the outcomes and emerging / potential for impact for schools, school workforce (leaders and teachers), pupils, or lack of.
- Assess what the change mechanisms linking activities to outcomes are, and how they vary across school and pupil contexts.
