These workshops get to the heart of the issues behind challenging

School staff are presented with a compelling case for the importance of adults managing their own behaviour responses so as to move beyond dictation to demonstration in their interactions with children.
Attendees finish the course with a toolkit of strategies that are
proven to work in even the most challenging situations.
Even more importantly, adults leave the course with a renewed
sense of hope that, every child really matters and that with
consistent care and guidance, every child can push beyond their
perceived boundaries and make a positive contribution to school
life. What children need is for adults to make the decision to
Be the One!

‘As a result of the
‘Will You be the One?’ INSET our whole approach to behaviour management has changed. Staff are more ready to “spot the positive” and this approach has been incorporated into our behaviour policy. Within school, staff take time to listen to the children, refrain from shouting and therefore are better able to meet the children’s needs.
We had two children join our school who had been excluded from their previous schools. They settled in beautifully and there were no behaviour issues. I have no doubt the ‘Will You be the One?’ INSET contributed to the way in which these children were supported within our school during this difficult transition.
The INSET encouraged a great deal of reflection and soul searching in all staff which was immensely powerful.‘
