Hi all I'm a trainee RE teacher at a secondary school. I really enjoy my job but struggle with my Year 10 classes (one in particular). At the beginning of the year we agreed a class contract: Respect each other was one of these. They do not. I have tried giving detention, adding time on to break and lunch, offering the chance to gain positive behaviour points, raising my voice, building a rapport with the more difficult students. Although when I'm observed they are good, they will walk across the room, talk across the room, talk when others are, I get frustrated and I struggle. They also sing in class! I make each lesson a new day and don't dwell on what happened before. I show I lobe my subject and I went over a unit again because they hadn't understood (although a colleague suggested they may have been trying it on and I had given too much control to them). My KS3 observations are outstanding for behaviour management but in my end of term report I was given a good because it's not consistent across all Key Stages. I feel a bit gutted and frustrated. Any tips appreciated.
