Dear Tom

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by emily_webster, Apr 3, 2012.

  1. Our school lacks a whole-school approach on behaviour. Where do we start? There are systems in place for low-level behaviour but when things escalate there are no real consequences and the children know this. What can I suggest to put this right?

    Hi Emily
    Hmm, this sounds like a recipe for a royal disaster. What happens, do people just make it up as they go along? That's no way to encourage good behaviour. You need to have whole-school consistency at the broader levels in order to help kids understand where they stand and how they should behave.
    I advice you to take a look at some of my resources I've posted (just follow the link through my name) where I've posted a sample whole school behaviour policy that is simple and easy to adopt. Amend it to your own needs, of course, and it's a secondary one, so bear that in mind. I've also got a few other bits and pieces downloaded there (like behaviour contracts etc) that might be useful.
    Good luck
