I am experienced teacher who, when first qualified, had to work hard at developing a behaviour strategy that, a) I was happy with, b) managable and c) encourages the children to adopt behavours that will stand them in good stead wherever they go , e.g sitting boy/girl with children of different abilities so they learn to mix with all, not just the people they like. Each child holds the door open for the one coming in behind them, perparing them for manners outside of the classroom. I have carpet places and lining up places. I also encourage children to look after their pens etc, having table inspections (which only need to happen for the first couple of weeks then they just do it automatically). I reward good behaviour with stickers that they collect to gain a prize. This system has worked well, I never have any serious behaviour problems, however at my new school I have been told that I need to change. I suppose my question is, Am I being too prescriptive on them?
