This practical book provides schools with common-sense advice and a usable framework for reviewing, developing and implementing a whole-school behaviour policy. It explains how to ensure that this policy is fully in accordance with the ethos of the establishment and the School Development Plan, and that it is compatible with the OFSTED inspection evaluation criteria.
In Part 1 the author examines the context, reviewing issues such as rewards and sanctions, bullying, pupil and staff protection, and the difficult pupil. The second section provides the practical framework, clearly outlining stages in the process - reviewing the current policy, then developing and implementing a whole-school behaviour policy. A sample policy and a list of contact organizations make this a complete guide for all schools anxious to develop a policy within their own institution.
This sensitive and readable book will be an essential guide for headteachers, deputies, school managers, head of department and teachers in all schools. It will also be useful for those working in Pupil Referral Units, and children's homes and centres.
