The Education Endowment Foundation has published a review of the current evidence on approaches to behaviour in schools.
The review, which was carried out by researchers at the University of Exeter, synthesises the best available international evidence on approaches to behaviour in schools. The goal is to:
- explain why pupils may misbehave
- review what types of classroom management approaches are most effective
- review what types of school-wide management approaches are most effective.
The report, which offers schools some recommendations for improving behaviour, suggests that universal systems are unlikely to work for all pupils, and for those pupils who need more intensive support with their behaviour, a personalised approach is likely to be better.
