How can all teachers get off to a solid start at the beginning of a new term?
The main reason for exclusion in English schools in general, is persistent disruptive behaviour (Gill et al., 2017) – approximately 40 pupils per day!
There are numerous reasons for challenging behaviour in the classroom. Many of these reasons are due to a lack of understanding from the pupil about what is acceptable in school and what is not. Other reasons can be more deep-rooted and may require additional support outside the classroom.
