Managing Behaviour

There are many reasons why children behave in a challenging manner and all teachers, whether they are new to teaching or with many years’ experience, can sometimes find pupil behaviour challenging. Don’t be too hard on yourself and remember that behaviour management skills improve with experience.

For each school that you work in ensure you familiarise yourself with the school’s behaviour policy, as each one may have different procedures and expectations of staff.
