Research from the Department for Education continues to record a strong relationship between negative behaviours in school and reduced educational attainment. At the same time, increases in disruptive behaviour have led to an increase in the population of pupils facing exclusions, as specialist Pupil Referral Units face a growing backlog that is degrading their ability to return challenging students back into mainstream education. Central to overcoming these challenges will be supporting vulnerable students and upskilling staff to manage challenging classrooms. Schools must therefore focus their efforts to reduce poor behaviour and incentivise positive conduct to improve student’s outcomes and reduce exclusions.

• 91% of surveyed pupils felt they understood how their school expected them to behave, according to the Department for Education’s June 2022 Report
• According to the same survey, 62% of school leaders and teachers reported that misbehaviour interrupted teaching in at least some lessons that week
• 22% of pupils surveyed said they had been a victim of bullying the past 12 months, according to the same report.

This one day online conference will allow delegates to hear the latest national updates and initiatives for managing and improving pupils’ behaviour in both primary and secondary schools. Hear from case studies covering a range of important topics including reducing suspensions and developing alternative consequences, managing pupil use of technology and the internet as well as upskilling staff to handle challenging pupils. There will also be the opportunity to network with senior colleagues and discuss challenges and solutions surrounding positive engagement with pupils to reward good or improved behaviour.
