Like most things in education, I’m not convinced that a one-size-fits-all approach is likely to address every behaviour you see in your class. What works for a colleague of yours may not work for you.

Below are some points of reference for you to have a look at and think about. Talk about the merits or otherwise of some of the ideas presented.

Try the ones that feel comfortable for you – and don’t expect change overnight.

Behaviour change is the hardest thing to achieve. It takes time, persistence and a great deal of teacher resilience.

Try to see this as a professional challenge as opposed to a personal one.
