The National Behaviour Support Service (NBSS) promotes and supports positive behaviour through the provision of a systematic continuum of support to school communities. The service assists partner post primary schools in addressing behavioural concerns in schools. I understand that the NBSS will be in direct contact with the school referred to by the Deputy in the context of the proposed withdrawal of the Behaviour for Learning Programme Teacher post and the school's appeal in this regard.
