Will You be the One?
Behaviour Management Training

This series of workshops get right to the heart of the issues that lie beneath challenging behaviour and provides powerful insight into why misbehaviour exists and, in some cases, persists. Behaviour roots and motives are clearly examined - giving participants vital insight into the inner dialogue of pupils with behaviour needs.

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.

 We teach school staff the 4 Ps of

Transformative Behaviour Intervention:

The behaviour policy is central to the management of behaviour in schools, but in many cases, the policy is on paper but not in practice. Learn how to bring the principles of your policy from the background to the foreground.
Schools exist for the primary purpose of teaching and learning, however so often teaching time is monopolised by the management of behaviour. This trend can be reversed. 
Pupils for whom behaviour is a challenge need adults to stick with them for the
long-haul. Learn how to manage the strong feelings aroused by challenging behaviour by holding on to the belief that every child has the capacity to change. 
One of the keys to creating sustained behaviour change is to increase your use of praise because pupils will note what you promote. This is the primary means through which pupils get 'feedback' and validation about their behaviour.

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.‘
