Positive Behaviour Strategies for high levels of pupil progress

  • Why do pupils misbehave?
  • How can positive behaviour strategies improve pupil attitudes to learning?
  • Does low level disruption interrupt pupil progress in the lessons in your school?

In 2016, the Department for Education (DfE) asked Tom Bennett to conduct a review of behaviour management practices in schools. The report looks at leadership, culture and methods to improve pupil behaviour and can be accessed here.

Whilst there have been many dissenting voices regarding the extent and nature of problem behaviour in schools, a consistent perception remains that pupil behaviour constitutes a significant and ongoing issue for teachers. Ofsted also noted that schools are finding it difficult to get proper support for dealing with increasing levels of violence and sexualised behaviour of pupils. All of these issues have been the focus of attention in the white paper The Importance of Teaching, further signalling their central importance in the process of enhancing the role schools and other settings play in enabling all pupils to be successful learners.

Benefits of Positive Behaviour Management

Positive behaviour management strategies create a learning environment built on mutual respect and understanding. A consistent positive approach helps build confidence in your pupils, boost self-esteem and highlight what your young learners do well across the whole school.

This course will identify the key areas that will help to ensure effective classroom behaviour management. It will initially look at the reasons why rules are in place, how these help learning, and how consistency and clarity is crucial. Opportunities to build and re-build pupil relationships will be set out to achieve win-win situations. Strategies for inside and outside classroom behaviour management will be reviewed, along with simple tips for dealing with low level disruption and higher confrontational situations.

This course is targeted at any teacher who wishes to sharpen their positive behaviour management skills and adopt effective strategies to tackle everything from low level disruption to high confrontation and therefore improve the quality of teaching, learning and progress in their classrooms.
