Written by a highly experienced educational psychologist who has delivered behaviour management solutions to schools for over 30 years, The Complete Resource File for Behaviour Management in Schools empowers any school, primary or secondary, to set up its own tried and tested behaviour management programme for a fraction of the cost of consultancy delivered training.
This indispensable whole school resource provides expert guidance and instruction covering 30 modules dealing with all aspects of behaviour management from whole school policy to classroom management. Each module is organised around four key constructs - communication, motivation, correction and organisation and detailed advice is given on the crucial areas of classroom practice, pupil support, staff support and monitoring and evaluation.
Areas covered include but are not limited to:
classroom management, dealing with difficult classes, working with supply teachers and TAs;
corridor behaviour, bullying, lunchtime behaviour;
Individual Behaviour Programmes;
staff support and well-being;
pupil anxiety, stress and anger management;
auditing, planning and data analysis.
All modules are on a CD-ROM containing over 900 PowerPoint slides. Each slide is accompanied by background notes, overviews and hints and tips to aid delivery. A durable ring-binder also accompanies the CD-ROM providing detailed background notes to explain the theory. Vignettes and examples drawn from schools of all types illustrate successful intervention and an overview of each module offers summaries, guidance on age appropriateness and examples of the desired outcomes of each module.
The Complete Resource File for Behaviour Management in Schools is suitable for any primary or secondary school and some SEN schools. Aimed at school leadership teams as well as other interested individuals within the school such as Child Protection Coordinators, SEAL and SENCO coordinators, this resource provides an effective, proactive and indispensible behaviour management programme.
