Power to the Pupils

Description

To help a new headteacher overcome student misbehaviour and class disruption, behaviour expert John Bayley provides advice in this classroom-management resource.

Ofsted six months ago reported remarkable progress at the Frankley High School, a small comprehensive on the outskirts of Birmingham. But Ofsted also identified an issue with pupil misbehaviour which unsettles the start of lessons.

John visits to help secondary headteacher Jonathon Wilding find a solution and he discovers that pupil immaturity and low self-esteem lie behind the problem.

John's pedagogical advice is to use more techniques to increase pupil independence, helping them overcome their immaturity and take more responsibility for their behaviour.

Having observed Jonathon teach a Year 9 maths class, John suggests that giving pupils more independence in lessons would also improve their learning.

John returns a month later to find that the maths class has improved and Jonathon has started giving the pupils more independence. However, some problems with behaviour remain.
