What kind of duties would a behaviour and inclusion manager do in a primary school?

    Any ideas based on personal experiences or previous schools? The school has a seperate SENCO also. Many thanks.

    Assuming this is separate from teaching duties and a full-time post in its own right, I would image some of the following, in no particular order:
    • supporting and relieving teaching staff (especially HOY) of the task of dealing with persistent trouble makers;
    • trying to support students so that they can get on with learning;
    • liaising with parents, senior staff and outside agencies in respect of students with all the issues that stop them learning;
    • intervening in classrooms via on-call;
    • supervising pupils taken out of lessons to cool off for varying periods of time;
    • feeding back to staff on the issues and the measures/sanctions taken;
    • negotiating with staff on re-integration of students;
    • seeing things from the student's point of view;
    • having the patience of a saint and being able to take the heat out of an otherwise explosive situation;
    • recognising that you are limited by the art of the possible.
    If, on the other hand, it's a TLR attached to a teaching post, keep well away.

    This is a terrific reply- especially the last line.

    Thank you. My reply was based on the difference between the traditional head of year role (with teaching) and the newer behaviour/student manager role (which must be non-teaching).
