Good teachers know that positive relationships with students and school connectedness lead to both improved learning and better behaviour for all students, and this is backed up by research. This book will show you how to promote positive behaviour and wellbeing in your setting.

Taking an holistic approach to working with students, the author provides examples of effective strategies for encouraging pro-social and collaborative behaviour in the classroom, the school and the wider community. Chapters look at the importance of the social and emotional aspects of learning, and ways to facilitate change.

Issues covered include:

  • developing a sense of belonging in the classroom

  • teaching approaches that maximise engagement and participation

  • how to respond effectively in challenging situations

  • ways to re-engage with students who have become marginalised.

Each chapter has case studies from primary and secondary schools, activities, checklists and suggestions for further reading. This is an essential textbook for trainee and newly-qualified teachers, and is also useful for more experienced teachers, as it offers advice to all on how to manage student relationships with confidence, respect and resilience.
