Tackling Low-Level Disruption

Promote positive behaviour, tackle incidents of poor behaviour and effectively minimise the impact of low-level disruption on learning

How to use this course

This course is comprised of two units, the first looking at promoting positive behaviour and the second looking at responding to low-level disruption.

Both units last around 80-90 minutes, and can both be split into two 40-minute chunks if necessary.

This course is designed for all classroom staff and pastoral staff, and to facilitate discussion.

Steve Baker

In a recent Ofsted survey, it was found that ‘one fifth of teachers indicated that they ignored low-level disruption and just "tried to carry on"'.

However, this behaviour not only impacts on learning of the perpetrators, but also that of others.

Effective behaviour leadership and management is central to tackling poor behaviour in the classroom. Are you confident that all colleagues are trained to minimise the impact of low-level disruption?

This course will enable you to:

  • promote positive behaviours: learn strategies for teaching positive behaviours for learning and developing an effective classroom environment
  • deal with low-level disruption: how to tackle inappropriate behaviour whilst not disrupting the lesson flow
  • manage your own behaviour: be aware of the impact of your behaviour on the behaviour of those around you, and modify your behaviour to suit.

Written by behaviour expert and educational consultant Steve Baker, this course will equip you with the practical tools you need to reduce low-level disruption in every classroom.
