Adele Bates

Behaviour & Education Specialist

Training

Empower your staff to confidently manage behaviour and understand pupils more, so that learning can become the focus…

Through training, keynotes and conference workshops I create a safe space for participants to put themselves in students’ shoes; I provide fresh approaches to successfully motivating the most challenging students; and empower the participants to understand how important inclusive education is for our students and society.

Each topic can be delivered as a series, workshops or keynote.

“Miss, I don’t give a sh*t” – Behaviour Management – In the classroom or a whole school approach

Do you want to be the inspiring teacher and leader you dreamed of, but it’s more like a losing battle to get them to be quiet, crying teachers in the staffroom and the odd flying desk?

Adele shares practical approaches, strategies and tips from her on-the-ground, over 20 years of teaching experience. In her humorous and down to earth way, she gives you the tools to ensure that positive relationships and learning gets back to being the focus in your school…

Teenagers and Behaviour – why they do what they do, and how we can support them to thrive

All you asked was for them to put their bag on the floor and WHAM!

Teenagehood is a particular time of child development; discriminated across society and largely misunderstood, teenagers are infamous for their more *fruity* behaviour in our classrooms. This talk reveals some of the mysteries of the teenage brain, how that affects pupils’ learning approaches, and how we can support our teens to become positive parts of social change.

In this talk Adele …This talk can be delivered as a keynote or as series to include any or all of the following:

Equality and Inclusion in Schools

Equality, privilege, bias, political correctness and what type of loos do we need now?

Adele’s practical talk reveals why a focus on equality and inclusion links directly to a positive outcome for your staff and pupils’ ability to engage and learn. Alongside the theory, Adele shares tools to help you put this in place in your organisation now and how to embed it for the long term.

This talk can be delivered as a keynote or as series to include any or all of the following:

  • Inclusivity, belonging and bias in the classroom (and how this relates to behaviour and academic progress)

  • RSHE – Teaching LGBTQ Sex and Relationships

Emotional Wellbeing in Schools

Academic progress, positive outcomes and targets – arguably some of the main reasons for education, however in her talks Adele reveals why without awareness of Emotional Wellbeing for staff and pupils, the former visions don’t hold.

With over 20 years experience in schools, Adele shares practical approaches to embedding Emotional Wellbeing strategies within the organisation at every level, and how to teach and support it overtly for staff and pupils.

This talk can be delivered as a keynote or as series to include any or all of the following:

  • Boundaries, negotiation and care for you – Staff Wellbeing
  • Self-regulation – for staff and overtly teaching pupils
  • Don’t take it personally – Staff wellbeing and behaviour

Support pupils with extreme behavioural needs and SEMH

“It never existed in my day, we just had to behave…”

Whilst this can be a common belief, it doesn’t actually help our pupils with SEMH and extreme behavioural needs (or the adults around them!). In her talk Adele gets to the nub of what SEMH actually is, why some pupils struggle to not disrupt and how, as with any other SEND, we differentiate our learning environments so that these pupils too can thrive with their education.

This talk can be delivered as a keynote or as series to include any or all of the following:

       Why can’t they just behave? – SEMH as an SEND

       Safety First (Learning Second) – Trauma, attachment and triggers

       How do you get them to pick up a book? – Reading and Extended Writing for students with SEMH

       Building relationships when they don’t want to know you

   Whole school approaches to supporting SEMH pupils – for SLT, MLT and Governors

 This topic is discussed in chapter 2,3,4,5,6 and 7 in Adele’s book “Miss, I don’t give a sh*t” Engaging with Challenging Behaviour in Schools

Does it all work? – Yes.

Take a look at my testimonials and previous clients on my website.

You need to be totally dedicated to your young people.

I want you to stop reading for just one moment to ask yourself, “What is a learning focused classroom/environment worth to me? What would I gain in my practice if I could create this consistently? How much extra time would my staff and I have if we didn’t need to worry (and how much more sleep could I get?!) What could we do with that extra time?”. What you’re getting with my programmes is what I call a series of, sometimes very personal, revelations that will spring your teaching practice forward!

As educators – in the midst of marking, ofsted and parents/carers’ evenings we forget who we’re really there for. Some of my approaches and tasks will involve you daring to try new things and holding your own through challenging moments – make this commitment, expect to fail sometimes – get back on the horse, and remember the huge impact you can make on a young person’s life.
