Behaviour and Staff Wellbeing

Managing behaviour that challenges you and retaining your own and other staff’s wellbeing?

This month I was interviewed on The Pursuit of Wellbeing Podcast, the podcast dedicated to the wellbeing of teachers, school leaders, and staff with Maria Bronsan @MariaBrosnan.

In this wide-ranging conversation, we explore –

  • How teacher wellbeing is affected by poor pupil behaviour.
  • What teachers can do for themselves, especially in setting and holding healthy boundaries.
  • How to create the infrastructure and support for teachers around behaviour.
  • Dealing with challenging behaviour and wellbeing post-lockdown.
  • Allowing more time and space in the classroom to help pupils dealing with trauma to feel safe.
  • How and when to manage your own self-care. (Hint: It’s not going to change unless you change something.)
  • Knowing your own triggers (so your students don’t trigger them.)
  • Adele’s ‘magic bullet’ in managing behaviour using a free, easy tool.

And much more!

Listen here, running time 35mins approx.

The Power of Silence in the classroom – 5 tips on when and how to use it

Silence is often used (or attempted to be used) as a behavioural tool in schools on the premise that it encourages concentration and therefore learning, but we have to be careful: silence is a strategy that, if used unwisely, can create compliance – a very different result to focused learning – as the empty page will demonstrate at the end of the lesson.
