Behaviour Management Coaching

Coaching Observations - Team Teaching - Demo Lessons

Is challenging or low level behaviour getting in the way of teaching and learning in YOUR classroom? 

Behaviour Management Coaching is a tailored and transformative series of 1-1 coaching sessions through which class teachers are equipped with the motivation and strategies needed to identify the blind spots in whole class behaviour management. The on-going cycle of support and professional dialogue has helped many teachers gain clarity about their role and responsibility in creating and maintaining a learning environment conducive to strong relationships and quality work output. 

As part of the coaching support package teachers can receive help with:

Behaviour planning for individuals or groups, demo lessons by the coach to model strategies and team teaching with an agreed focus. 

 

Key features of the coaching process:

 

  • Policy in practice - is the school policy known and used?

  • Praise v criticism - what is the primary focus?

  • Seated and settled - are children seated where they can learn best?

  • Recognition and reward - is it clear what type of behaviour is expected?

  • Strains and drains - where are the behaviour 'hotspots?'

4 x 90mins coaching sessions (60mins classroom observation / 30mins feedback)

1 x 1 hour review meeting via Zoom

Session 1: Discovery (60mins) via Zoom

The reasons for the behaviour

This discovery meeting is the place for the teacher to outline the key classroom management issues and to gain some initial insights from the coach as to the possible root causes.

The coaching process is explained and the agreed focus points are agreed.

 

Session 2 - 5: Recovery (90mins each) in school behaviour observations (60mins obs + 30mins feedback)

The remedy for the behaviour

The recovery stage of the coaching process involves in-person lesson observations during which the coach will observe and note all aspects of classroom practice that impact behaviour including: classroom management, the quality of teaching and learning,  transitions, teacher/pupil relationships and evidence of policy in practice.  

 

Each 60min observation is immediately followed by 30mins feedback during which good practice is recognised and areas to develop become the key focus of subsequent observations. Written feedback notes provided after each observation.

 

Session 6: Review (60mins) via Zoom

The recipe for continued success

This review meeting is a chance to recap the work carried out and to clearly pinpoint the areas that need to be embedded into practice to help sustain the control and confidence gained.

Testimonials

Clear and concise feedback given in a timely manner. Tracey highlighted positive aspects of practice, in addition to areas for development/improvement. I always felt like Tracey was on my side and helping me, as opposed to judging my teaching.

Y4 teacher, Christ the King CE Primary School

The steps given to changing behaviour management were small and manageable. Each week’s targets built on the previous session. It was interesting to learn how effective constant referral to the school rules impacted on behaviour, as the children have started quoting them for themselves when discussing and resolving issues with behaviour.

Y4 teacher, Montem Primary School

Feedback from Tracey was consistently constructive and set realistic targets for each session, as well as consolidating targets from the previous sessions. My relationship with my pupils has greatly improved and it is now second-nature for me to refer to the language of the school rules.

I am a much more vigilant teacher with higher expectations for behaviour. I focus a lot more on the positive behaviour within my classroom and have been helped to use a more assertive tone.

Y2 teacher, The Willow Primary School

As a teacher I am more conscious of the need to set expectations for behaviour at every juncture during my lessons and I am far more aware of insisting on behaviour for learning; sitting facing the front with both feet on the floor.  The coaching gave me more of a range of tools to establish quiet in my classroom.

Y5 teacher, The Willow Primary School

Tracey gave me a lot of low level strategies to manage behaviour, like simply repositioning myself next to children who were becoming distracted.  These low level strategies have contributed greatly to a smoother learning experience for the children.

Y3 teacher, Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park

The display of the class rules has really helped to provide a visual reference point for my children and makes it really clear what the agreed code of conduct is.  Tracey helped me to refer to the rules more readily during my lessons by linking praise and warnings to the rules. 

Y1 teacher, St James Hatcham C of E Primary School
