“Disruptive pupil behaviour is a frustration for many teachers. In fact, 70% of teachers told us they had considered quitting the profession over poor behaviour”

— TEACHER SUPPORT NETWORK AND FAMILY LIVES BEHAVIOUR SURVEY 2010

Interacting with individuals who display distress through problem behaviour has an emotional toll on all educators. Embedding a comprehensive system to assist staff with this is a core feature of the inset day. All staff will learn how to implement this system by themselves and for themselves. This adds a structure for staff that they can utilise before relying on their senior hierarchy.

Sometimes a cycle can develop between the teacher and the students that only makes things worse: the pupils misbehave more, you dislike them more, you are less positive and friendly, they dislike you and your classes more, they disrupt more and so it goes on. The cycle needs to be broken. This is illustrated by the Betari Box:

“Study of over 100 reports on classroom management, including 134 experiments designed to find the most successful classroom strategies as well as finding that pupils prefer the dominant-cooperative style mix twice as much as the purely cooperative style or indeed any other style”
