I am confused. Currently I work in a special measures primary school in a borough with a majority of failing schools. Ofsted commented on our poor behaviour generally. Since a new HT came in, we've had a behaviour policy implemented (OMFG WOW) but there seems to be a point at which children who are sent to the head teacher are having their tears dried, a play on an iPad, juice, or a snack or a sticker etc. Why do management do this? Should teachers do this too? I really don't understand it, and this is the second school in which SLT have done this. If this is actually a policy, why isn't it in the policy? I'm looking for some sort of pedagogical explanation, because I really don't want to think that management are giving kids a treat after they have hit someone/disrupted a lesson etc.
