In Hong Kong secondary schools, disruptive behaviour occurs frequently and becomes more serious irrespective of the punishment. To solve the behaviour problem, the researcher considers that the existing strategies for managing disruptive behaviour appear to have failed. Once schools the problem with a proper perspective and adopt appropriate strategies, disruptive behaviour can be well under control.There is a tendency to use team approaches and whole school behavioural policy. The whole school behavioural policy emphasizes the collaborative work within the whole school in dealing with behavioural problem. With reference to the framework of such whole school behavioural approach this study aims at exploring the occurrence, explanation and management of disruptive behaviour.
