Lessons from the Horse Whisperer

Description

Steve Taylor, a teacher at Kingshurst School in Birmingham, noticed similarities between the needs and behaviour of the children he teaches and the horses he looks after.

As a big fan of Monty Roberts, the horse whisperer, he realised that he could adapt the principles Roberts uses with horses and apply them in the classroom.

Steve explains how staff "create a safe environment in which learning can take place. Reward positive actions. Never use threats, coercion or violence. Listen. Be patient. Wait for co-operation and be consistent."

This programme tells the story of how a whole school has been inspired by the work of the horse whisperer.
