4 days to go and it is the right time to be going. I'm exhausted after just two terms! Our autocratic SLT are so blind, they cannot see that their behaviour policy is dysfunctional, impractical, just doesn't work and makes students' behaviour worse not better. All the things that reports and studies identify repeatedly about what makes a bad behaviour policy, what doesn't work in schools, this school has got! I suspect that there are some issues that could offer mitigating circumstances for the SLT. Because they never talk to the troops on the ground about behaviour, because they don't understand that including everyone in a behaviour policy and implementing it successfully is the way to make it effective, we'll never know. SLT never involved staff in the original policy, and they never include staff in any reviews. The same children (sorry, that should read, 'the same SLT') cause the same problems for teachers in the classroom again and again and again and again and ..... The school could be good. Because of the next to useless Head and SLT, it's a disaster zone; children learn far less than they could, they have their life chances stunted and staff are constantly miserable and demoralised and worn out. Four long months off and then China here we come. The grass will be at least as green because it can't be worse than the brown stains everywhere at this school.
