Behaviour lessons from the best UK schools
In this session Tom will outline the most effective strategies that schools (and classrooms) utilised in order to create safe, calm and nurturing environments were students and staff could all flourish. Behaviour is closely connected to the classroom culture, and the school leaders need to be the conscious architects of that culture. When this happens, everything is possible. Until it does, very little is.
