Title: International School Award

Staff Meeting 10th November 2008
You are standing in front of a room with a
lightbulb inside of it. You can not see if it is
on or off. Outside the room there are three
switches. You may turn the switches any way you
want to. You stop turning the switches, enter the
room and know what switch controls the
lightbulb… How do you do that ?

  • Attention seeking

Top tips for positive behaviour management.
  • Model the behaviour you want to see
  • Keep basic respect intact and protect the
    students self esteem.
  • Give the students choice but always follow
    through with sanctions.
  • Catch them being good and reward them for it.
  • Separate the behaviour from the person.

    with words and actions.
  • Be clear with words, no ambiguity.
