If you want to get the public, politicians and papers hot under the collar you only need mention ‘classroom behaviour’. It’s a subject everyone has an opinion on – and it’s never positive. For every media-fuelled horror story of disruptive behaviour there is a knee-jerk, sack the teachers, blame the parents, get the troops in response, which often makes things worse when it comes to actually engaging children in learning. This book is not only about effective behaviour strategies that genuinely work but it is also special as it has been written by a practising head teacher, drawing on that unique perspective of whole-school behaviour. Full of helpful, practical, do-able tips and ideas it is relevant for any teacher, manager or leader in all sorts of schools.
