Behaviour Issues

Discussion in 'Primary' started by lassylou, Jul 11, 2011.

  1. Not sure which strategy to try next.......
    Child in Year 4 class whose behaviour is getting worse and worse. At first strategies such as warning cards etc worked but now the child is just throwing them on the floor and shouting and answering back.
    We have the reward charts/home school books etc you name it but nothing seems to be having a postive effect! We are going on a school trip on Thursday and really concerned that the child will fail to follow instructions etc.
    There are consequences for the childs behaviour but even these don't seem to have desired effect.
    anyone got any strategies that have worked in the past?
  2. Poor kid... sounds very distressed. The best way to discipline any child is of course to find the root cause of the behaviour, and find out what's going on inside their head!! What is the child like at home? The wrong technique could of course make the problem alot worse.

    Then do a risk assessment for taking this child. If you cannot get the risk to low then meet with his mother and explain that it is not safe for her son to come on the trip and he will therefore be left at school.

    Clear and consistently applied consequences are needed. He throws the card on the floor, so therefore he is given a choice to pick it up or sit in time out. He is rude, he is sent to another class or the DH/HT.

    Behaviour does sometimes get worse at this time of year as vulnerable children worry about the next year and what will happen. Can he have some 1:1 time with a TA where they talk lots about the positive moving up a year, etc. Behaviour also gets worse when we are tired and exhausted...try to keep calm and continue with what you have done all year. No point changing it now.
