Hi all, It's been a number of years since I posted however after 7 years, I am now stuck. I work in a secondary school, which is in SM. However, I have a number of pupils in two Y8 classes who cause a number of disruptions to the learning. I have attempted every strategy I can think of - you name it, I am likely to have tried it. Phone calls home don't work. Parental meetings don't and haven't worked. New differentiated seating plan. Positive phone calls, postcards, post its, verbal praise, immediate feedback etc., hasn't worked. A variety of challenging/differentiated activities. Detentions. Following the school policy to the letter. HOY, HOD and pastoral intervention hasn't worked. Departmental reports for these students to monitor progress. These are just a few of the things I have tried. I am run ragged with them. Their books and assessments are marked up to date with positive comments and constructive feedback in line with the school policy. They all get my attention. I am completely and utterly lost as to what to do? The behaviour was terrible yesterday and they ended up throwing erasers around the room one of which hit my head. I have hit the books to find different strategies, none of which seem to have worked. Has anyone had a similar issue and found something that worked. Today I am doing ' Lets make it better' lesson where we will have an open forum to discuss and challenge issues. I hope it works. HELP! P.s thank you!
