The bottom line is that OFSTED see low level disruption as a problem. They estimate that pupils lose at least 1 hour a day and 38 days within the academic year due to low level disruption. Equally teachers are
concerned. In a recent survey 75% teachers said that they have had to deal with a violent incident.
During this fun, down to earth, no-nonsense and interactive session, staff will be provided with a whole toolkit of simple, practical and realistic strategies. These can be implemented the very next day, in their own practice and across the whole school, to de-escalate and diffuse any low level inappropriate behaviour quickly, effectively and non-confrontationally. Staff will also be provided with a complete range of individual and whole school practical ideas to prevent any low level inappropriate behaviour occurring in the first place and creating a positive climate for learning. Staff will also be equipped and empowered to put this into their own practice and also to support the colleagues they lead to adopt the key principles of developing outstanding behaviour, including rules, routines, relationships, rewards, engagement, effective teaching and learning and assessment, positive parental involvement, presence, assertiveness, confidence and consistency. Staff will also have the tools and strategies to support pupils to have a 'can do' attitude to learning where they are independent, resilient, take risks and have a growth mindset.
The heart of the session focuses on staff taking responsibility for
behaviour and looking at their own practice and the whole school
approach to improving pupils attitudes to learning.
