Hello all, I am looking for some advice as I seem to have been abandoned by SLT and expected to solve this problem on a classroom level. I took over the GCSE class in my training year. I spent time observing them prior to me taking them over and I have to admit they were wild. The class were primarily female, low ability girls who looking at their history were disruptive in every lesson. Once i took them over I implemented my three rules and over time I got the majority of the students to follow the rules. Coursework thrived and I was proud of the progress the students had made. Lessons are rarely perfect but I make sure to apply all rules consistently and follow the schools behavior policies. I give students choices and I repeat instructions. I would like to think my exam lessons are engaging. However, four girls in my classroom seem to have developed a misbehavior. I expect it off two of the girls who are rarely in my lesson due to isolation ect. The other two I am usually able to redirect. For the last few lessons since we returned from half-term they have completed little or no work, They have headphones in even though I have a policy of not entering the classroom with them on. They simply put them on after and refuse to hand them over. They completely ignore me. They disrupt the rest of the class by dancing and singing around the room, putting make-up on, shouting ect. With these girls I feel like I have tried everything. I have rang home to parents but there is no support at home at all. I constantly remove the girls from my lesson but there is no further punishment. I seem to spend every day I have them chasing them up because they have failed to turn up for detentions. Even when I have them before a break, they just run out of the classroom. Overall, they are disrupting my lesson and sanctions are having no affect. SLT have been in to observe the girls as I raised serious concerns and they said that if I carry on implementing the schools behaviour policies the girls will change. However, the girls now seem to enjoy what they see as the game we play every lesson of warnings that always lead to them being sent out. I have attempted to ignore the behaviour but they see this as a free pass and carry on regardless. Restorative conversations seem to work 1:1 and then in the next lesson we have the same issue. I feel like I have tried everything. I have worked hard to make sure I am doing the best for these girls and enrolled and implemented Paul Dix's behaviour strategies and they seem to have no effect. My question/plea to you is what do I do next? SLT are leaving this in my hands. Do I carry on sending them out every lesson? I need some advice because at the moment I feel like I'm a terrible teacher and these girls are going to fail and the blame will fall at my feet.
