O'Connell Secondary School

Positive Behaviour in OCS

O’Connell Secondary School is delighted to be associated with the National Behaviour Support Service (NBSS), an external agency funded by the Department of Education and Skills. Established in 2007, the ‘Back on Track’ initiative was initially developed in our school by Ms Emer Kelly and Mr Brian O’Donnell. Their dedication and commitment to the service, especially during its infancy stage, has meant that the promotion of positive behaviour and learning among our students is a core feature of our school today.

At present, we continue promoting positive behaviour at whole-school, group and individual level in the school. This involves implementing positive behaviour strategies, evaluating current teaching and learning and consulting with staff and students on how to enhance the teaching and learning that takes place in the school.

For some students who might need additional support our SST works with identified students, individually or in groups on various programmes. These programmes are designed to meet the social, emotional, positive health / wellbeing and behavioural and academic needs of our students so they can achieve and succeed in school.

For more information please contact our school.
