I would appreciate any suggestions... There is a year 5 pupil (in y5/6 class) with several educational and behavioural issues. I have worked with the policies put in place, no shouting, calm environment, own area to relax, fiddle toys, ect; I have respected the parents' wishes of not expecting to push the child beyond their capabilities (working at y2 ) as discussed by the SENCO. However, the child is still being disruptive and argumentative. There is constant low level disruption (talking, breaking/ hiding equipment, banging, ect) and when challenged they deny that they are doing it or argue that no one is being distracted. There is also a lot of physical contact (pushing /shoving/ barging through ). I ignore a lot of the less significant distractions/ behaviour and I try not to just speak to this child, as this agrevates the situation, and try to encourage all the children to be respectful to everyone. There are times when I do only speak to the child, which I usually do privately. Whatever I try just does not work, or will for a while. I have spoken to SLT who encourage me to continue as I am but I feel that it is becoming more detrimental to the other pupils, both academic and social, and to me. I am beginning to dread having to deal with it each day, breathing a sigh of relief when the child is not in class. I am usually able to deal with this type of behaviour, however, I am at a total loss. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can deal with this? Or is there something I have missed to do? Thanks.
