Berry Street Education Model

At Boronia Heights the staff are trained in all five domains. The five domains of the Berry Street Education Model correspond with child-development capacities that each student must grow in order to be ‘ready to learn’. When considering how to best meet the needs of students, we focus on building self-regulatory ability, relational capacity and then nurture wellbeing and willingness to engage in learning.


Increasing students’ capacity for physical and emotional regulation of the stress response, de-escalation and focus.


Nurturing on-task learning through relational classroom management strategies.


Creating a culture of academic persistence by nurturing resilience, emotional intelligence and a growth mindset.


Motivating students with strategies that increase their willingness to learn.


Harnessing a values and character strengths approach for learning and future pathways. Working together, BSEM helps our school strengthen their whole-school approach to build consistency and predictability across all classrooms throughout the school.
