Anyone got any advice? Have been in my school since last September. Last year tricky year 6 class this year Very difficult year 4 - told I was moved because of my excellent behaviour management! Last year interim head - this year new head. Last year we had - as have many schools - a behaviour policy which included sending chn to other teachers for 5 mins time out. This year been told not to do this - nothing has been put in to replace this practice. My class is underachieving according to their year 3 data. I have already been told I need to improve 'pace'. However, i have a couple of chn who are not responding to my strategies, i am not allowed to send them to colleagues. Today at the end of my tether I sent one child ( I can only describe his behaviour today as off the wall - nothing had any impact) to the head with a note saying that his behaviour was such that no one was able to do anything constructive. 2 mins later he was back with head who told him to say sorry. then head left!! I have an observation in a weeks time and I know i will be pulled up on pace and not meeting learning objectives. How do you get pace when there is constant bad behaviour. this is not just one chd but 4 or 5 altho there were 2 that were really bad today. Any ideas?? Please? I am not an NQT but a very experienced teacher who was very close to tears today when chd was just sent back - that has never happened to me before. Will also post on behaviour forum but you are all so very supportive i would welcome your imput.
