Behaviour Skills for Learning

‘Behaviour for Learning’ is Fallibroome’s response to the National Strategy on behaviour. It personalises and reflects the philosophy and teachings of Bill Rogers into the school’s individual needs and is designed to equip staff with the framework for maximising teaching and learning and minimising disruptive and unacceptable behaviour.

To support our behaviour agenda all year 7 students follow a skills-based course, the main aim of which is to engender in the students a real feeling and empathy for the school’s ethos and culture. It is intended to be fun whilst emphasising the generic skills which will make them better learners.

Although managing behaviour is a complex, multi-tasked, multi-skilled role, it is helpful to have in mind a simple and complete picture of what the job entails. The following model, devised by Bill Rogers, shows the principles we need to apply in all situations and the preferred practices we need to adopt. It is a useful aid to refer to when things go wrong. It holds our planning together whether we are a teacher in the front line or a senior manager working on whole school policy and, most importantly it is central to our philosophy and practice at Fallibroome.
