Brief Overview

Managing and supporting staff when they are dealing with children struggling with challenging behaviour is difficult at the best of times. This session aims to support leaders in thinking strategically about how to improve behaviour for learning across the school, with a targeted focus on children showing extreme/challenging behaviour. The session will start with exploring a school's self evaluation of behaviour and attitudes, moving onto implementing various strategies with staff. It will end in understanding how impact can be measured over time.
