This one day course on behaviour will focus on the key strands of improving the classroom management of pupils. We will look at the following issues:

  • The causes of poor behaviour using the results of recent research.
  • Managing our own behaviour as an adult and ensuring our verbal and non-verbal behaviours are appropriate and get the best results.
  • The importance of establishing routines to ensure pupils feel safe.
  • How to review our reward/sanction systems and focus on positivity rather than the negative. Developing a positive mindset.  The use of a restorative approach as an alternative to punishment.
  • How the importance of consistency forms the basis of all we do in the classroom.
  • How to deal with angry pupils and staff!

After the course staff will have a good understanding of how they and their institutions need to change in order to have better behaviour in classes and around the school. They will feel more confident in dealing with conflict situations and have a clearer insight in to why young people behave as they do in certain situations.
