I've already had behaviour support involved, and am implementing some of the things suggested, but always find that TES can offer a wealth of experience and suggestions! I'm an F2 teacher and 29 out of the 30 children are pretty lovely generally - certainly well within the bounds of manageable! Then we have number 30 ... he's very young in the year and quite bright - eg he is reading very well (top quarter of groups) and has lots of interest in maths, science and making things. His behaviour has shifted very little since he started school. He frequently (3-4 times a week) hurts other children. Eg he may walk past someone and kick them, or punch them if they are in his way ... quite a bit of spitting etc. This is the thing behaviour support suggested we tackle first. But he is not really interested in his reward scheme. He's not really interested in any kind of reward - no interest in stickers, or the reward system set up. He has little respect for adults and when his behaviour is being addressed he generally closes his eyes or hums. We have major issues with sharing and turn-taking with other children. Even in conversation, he is not willing to take turns, despite lots of small group work input. He has a very hot temper and often when he is disciplined, he shouts and screams. Sometimes he screams at other children if they have a toy he wants. The major issue in terms of running the class is that he is is as disruptive as possible, and I think this is wilful behaviour. He wanders around, won't sit down, makes stupid noises etc. I know he CAN sit nicely, since he has been excluded from a couple of treats recently and clearly assumed we would change our minds because he sat beautifully and was very sensible. He is alienating himself from the rest of the class. Apart from hurting people and not sharing, he won't join in group activities like tidying up and he is very rude to some children. Now I know that I have to keep the perspective that he is ONLY 4, but after half a year at school I would have expected to see more improvement. I suppose the frustration is that we have not found a way to reach him. He can be a complete delight 1:1 and is a very sweet and funny little boy. He just refuses to acknowledge that classroom rules are for him as well.
