A School Without Sanctions- a new approach to behaviour management
A School Without Sanctions offers an innovative approach to behaviour management in schools, prioritising compassion and behaviour modification over punishment. Drawing on their award-winning methods, Steven Baker and Mick Simpson explain why challenging behaviour occurs and provide a toolbox of non-confrontational approaches that will benefit the whole school community.
When Steven and Mick set out to transform their school’s approach to behaviour, it changed everything. With the help of Dr Alice Jones Bartoli at Goldsmiths, they developed a sanction-free approach in their special school for boys with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties. Far from descending into anarchy, lessons began to improve and student staff relationships flourished. The school is now rated outstanding in all areas, and more importantly, student outcomes have been remarkable.
Steven and Mick apply this experience, as well as their work in pupil referral units and young offender institutions, to explore their strategies for managing behaviour without the need for zero tolerance, discussing exclusions, trauma, motivation and engagement along the way. Rooted in neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, this book will revolutionise the way you think about behaviour management, help boost student mental health and academic achievement, and protect teacher wellbeing.
Literacy Beyond The Classroom- ten real-world projects proven to raise attainment in primary
Improves English progress at Key Stage 2 by 3.75 times the UK national average Dominic Traynor, the founder of LitFilmFest, and experienced educator Cath Bufton-Green offer a practical method for primary teachers to radically improve English attainment in their classroom. This innovative approach links global challenges including politics, social change, the environment, health and advertising to the five key National Curriculum areas in English: reports, instructions, persuasive language, fiction and poetry, and presentation skills. It develops reading and writing through exciting, real-world tasks such as emailing a politician, creating a viral video and using social media to start petitions. Literacy Beyond the Classroom presents ready-to-use lesson plans, exercises and activities to help teachers bring this concept to life in the primary classroom. This way of learning has been found to improve English progress at Key Stage 2 by 3.75 times the UK national average. The projects can be completed in Adobe Spark. By teaching English in this practical, purposeful and more meaningful way, we can inspire the YouTube generation to learn the literacy skills they need to influence the world around them and have a positive impact as global citizens.
