Behaviour Champions training series – Session 5: Policy and Practice
A behaviour policy should be a clear and concise document that sets out a school’s agreed approaches to understanding and responding to behaviour. It is the policy that should dictate the code of conduct expected by all stakeholders, through its explanation of rules, routines, sanctions and rewards. There are clear indicators that a policy works well because it is clear, used consistently by all staff and this consistency is evidenced through the use of a common language. Is this the case in your school?
Come and get answers to these vital questions:
- How can staff teams move from personality to policy-driven responses to behaviour?
- How can the behaviour policy be used more effectively to teach positive behaviour rather than simply informing responses to negative behaviour?
