One year on from Tom Bennett’s report for the government on Pupil Behaviour, how schools manage the behaviour of their pupils, and address the parallel issues of attendance and exclusions, is more important than ever. Embedding a positive learning environment that allows pupils to flourish, and evidencing that to Ofsted, is a key concern for school leaders.

Attend this timely Westminster Briefing for an update on government and Ofsted thinking in this area, including developments from the Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund and the latest around National Professional Qualifications. Take back concrete strategies from Outstanding schools that have developed effective and targeted measures to support pupils, allowing them all to achieve their full potential.

Key issues to be addressed:

  • Overview of government policy and funding: one year on from the Bennett Review
  • What to expect from Ofsted: selection, observation, assessment & outcomes
  • Strengthening teachers’ training and powers to maintain order in the classroom
  • Avoiding exclusions and repeated short-term exclusions
  • Working with parents and carers to improve behaviour and reduce truancy
  • Managing the behaviour of pupils with special needs
  • Linking mental health and behaviour: appropriate and targeted measures to support pupils
  • Examples of successful practice in behaviour management: primary and secondary
  • Dealing with bullying: the roles for governors, staff and pupils
