It is widely accepted that good and outstanding teaching is the most effective way to get good behaviour. Teachers who plan and teach dynamic, stimulating lessons based on sound assessment and excellent subject knowledge are likely to experience fewer difficulties with behaviour.
Our training is focussed on the outstanding aspects of teaching and develops the core principles of teaching to support effective behaviour and classroom management. There are a host of contributing factors to outstanding behaviour management and we look to cover all aspects to ensure that participants complete the training feeling more confident and competent at managing behaviour. At the end of our training participants will:
Understand that they are responsible for ensuring the highest standards of behaviour from their pupils;
Have developed their own personal style for managing behaviour.
Be able to vary the tone and volume of their voice to teach effectively and manage behaviour.
Understand how to stand, move, make use of space and use eye contact in order to be an authoritative presence in the classroom.
Understand what responses, both verbal and non-verbal, can have on children’s behaviour. Participants will be able to manage their own emotions when teaching and be sensitive to the emotions of the pupils.
Be able to reflect on the way they manage behaviour and their classrooms and be prepared to change what isn’t working well. This reflective learning is a powerful means to improve performance and focus on those areas of development.
Understand how effective school systems support good behaviour management, and prevent and deal with bullying. Participants will be able to adapt their practice to fit with the school behaviour policy and should understand that consistency is an essential component of managing behaviour.
Understand that good relationships are at the heart of good behaviour management and with this in mind, participants will be able to form positive, appropriate, professional relationships with their pupils.
Be able to use praise effectively.
Know how to apply rewards and sanctions to improve behaviour.
Know how to develop and teach routines to pupils so that time is used efficiently.
Be able to manage behaviour in a range of different situations such as whole class teaching, group work, the corridors and the playground.
More challenging behaviour

Be able to plan and teach lessons that take account of individual children’s special needs, so that they are less likely to misbehave.
Know how to take appropriate and effective action when they are confronted by more extreme behaviour.
Know about scientific research and developments, and how these can be applied to understanding, managing and changing children’s behaviour.
