Does this sound familiar?

Today, schools are facing complex challenges in managing student behaviours due to diverse classrooms, varied learning needs, and external influences. 

You may be noticing…

  • Escalating disruptive behaviour among students, impacting the overall classroom and school environment
  • A rise in student disengagement, affecting academic performance and classroom participation
  • Challenges in creating a positive and inclusive school culture due to complex student behaviours
  • Increased stress among teachers and staff, struggling to manage and address disruptive behaviours effectively

As a result, your staff are grappling with the consequences of unmanageable student behaviour, from classroom disruptions to a strained school atmosphere. The impact on student learning and teacher morale is evident, hindering the achievement of your school’s academic and developmental goals. 

The current strategies in place may be falling short, and the persistent challenges are leaving you searching for a comprehensive and effective approach to student management that can bring about meaningful and sustainable change.

When Student Behaviour is A Top Stressor, Your Staff Don’t Want More of the Typical Wellbeing Initiatives

They want solutions to student management challenges!

As you navigate the complexities of managing student behaviours, the strain on your staff’s wellbeing becomes increasingly evident. 

While wellbeing initiatives might seem like a great way to support your people with their stress levels, the reality is that when they are contending with disruptive student behaviours, concerns about student well-being, or situations that compromise their safety, conventional wellbeing strategies can inadvertently contribute to frustration rather than offering genuine support. 

What your staff truly need to support their wellbeing, is a strategic approach that directly addresses the main cause of their daily stress at work.

Imagine if you could transform your school environment into a haven of positive behaviour, where students thrive, teachers feel supported, and learning flourishes

What if, in just one term, you could map out a plan to embed a revolutionary student management support program tailored to your school’s unique needs? 

Picture a streamlined and effective approach that not only addresses the challenges faced in your school but also nurtures a culture of respect, cooperation, and positive engagement amongst staff, students and community. 

Systemising your approach to student and classroom management is essential to achieve lasting change and enable your school to reach its full potential

Address staff stress related to challenging student behaviours and pastoral care concerns:

Show your staff they matter. Alleviate staff stress and build resilience by equipping them with practical strategies and support mechanisms to effectively manage student behaviour.

Co-create a whole-school vision and approach to student management:

Engage the entire school community in a collaborative process to foster a positive school culture that aligns with the values and expectations of students, staff, and parents alike.

Build or refine a systemised whole-school approach to student management:

Facilitate the development of a tailored Student Management Action Plan to systematically address behaviour challenges and promote positive behaviours. Leverage a school-wide approach to ensure consistency across the school.

Promote a positive school culture:

Cultivate a resilient and empowered staff, fostering a positive work environment conducive to teaching and learning excellence. This transformative process supports the overall wellbeing and success of both students and staff alike.

What our pilot participants are saying...

“With their guidance and support, we feel confident sharing the data with staff and working with our staff to create a common language and approach to managing our key stresses.”

“We began working with Adrienne earlier this year when our staff identified the need for support with their wellbeing. We always knew that having a staff that felt safe and supported was the key to improving learning outcomes for our students, and her support gave us a great opportunity to really identify the key factors impacting staff (Student Management).

Adrienne the team are very responsive and supportive of the leadership, having similar experiences which are relatable. They honour and value our previous approach and its great affirmation that we have been on the right track. They have a warm and inviting approach. They listen intently and actively to understand the needs of the school.

With their guidance and support, we feel confident sharing our approach with staff and working with our staff to create a common language and approach to managing our key stresses.

I would highly recommend Adrienne Hornby Consulting to help your school.”

👋🏻 Hi, I’m Adrienne - A Wellbeing Consultant and Strategist For Schools

As a school leader (and teacher!), I was once unhappy, overworked and burnt out. And when I looked around me, I could see I wasn’t alone in my struggles. My fellow colleagues were drowning under the high stress, immense workload and heavy expectations of their role.

By prioritising my own health and wellness, I started to feel healthier, happier and more engaged at work. This was when I realised that by looking after myself, I was better able to look after my people. Using the lessons I learned on my own wellbeing journey, I transformed the way I led my staff,  making their wellbeing a priority and creating positive team environments year after year.

This shift in focus made me a fierce advocate for staff wellbeing in schools. It’s my mission to help schools put their people first to build more positive staff and school cultures.

I partner with school leaders and their staff across Australia to collect the crucial  data they need to build tailored Staff Wellbeing Action Plans.

Each plan aims to nurture a positive school environment and address teacher and staff burnout, so that they can improve their school’s outcomes and performance.
