Leading Better Behaviour
A Guide for School Leaders
- Jarlath O'Brien - Teacher, Tes behaviour columnist
How can an informed, evidence-based whole school approach to behaviour benefit you, your colleagues and your students?
In this companion to Better Behaviour, Jarlath O’Brien combines insights from his own experience of improving behaviour in schools, research and policy in a practical guide to support current and aspiring school leaders.
Through discussing the everyday issues that come with leading on behaviour, and casting a critical eye over sanctions, rewards and exclusions, this book encourages you to develop an approach that is firmly rooted in the values of your school, supports staff and will help navigate the challenges that can arise.
Jarlath O’Brien has written a must read book for all leaders who are serious about making lasting change. Each chapter details systems and procedures, which reflect the legal duties of schools, their governing bodies and trustees, whilst making sure the rights of children, young people and their families are paramount.
