Difficult pupil behaviour can reflect and exacerbate stresses within a school, increasing the potential for conflicts among teachers, parents and support staff. The need to acknowledge and overcome this in practice is fully recognised and is a central challenge addressed by this book. Challenging Behaviour in Schools describes effective practical approaches that have been developed by schools and support services. It contains chapters on behaviour support in mainstream primary and secondary schools, the organisation of support services and also looks at the ways parents and schools can work together. Other chapters outline whole school approaches to building better behaviour, as well as specific techniques. Challenging Behaviour in Schools will be of direct, practical value to all teachers, senior staff, special needs coordinators and governors in schools, educational psychologists, support teachers and all those involved in policy and planning.

`... an excellent volume, one which should become essential reading for students of education, especially those at the start of their careers. Incidentally, not only is the book concise; unusually for a jointly-authored book it is also hard to see the joins; it really does read well' - Scottish Affairs `An interesting comparison of pairs of schools which differed in the extent to which they excluded, the authors found several differences: the schools' views on what education is all about; the way the curriculum is structured; relations with parents; and decision-making about exclusion' - Times Educational Supplement Exclusion from school is a major concern for teachers, parents and children, and features in government initiatives. This book takes a broad look at exclusion, mapping the extent of exclusions and showing what factors can lead to children being excluded, whether permanently or informally, from school. The authors focus on various kinds of in-school alternatives to exclusion. They show how schools and teachers can make a difference to young people's emotional and social development, as well as to their cognitive-intellectual development. For many children with difficulties in their families or communities, school can be a safe and supportive refuge. School is also much more than just the subjects on the timetable, and the authors look in detail at the hidden curriculum, or school ethos, as a means of preventing exclusion. The book goes beyond in-school alternatives to consider the effectiveness of out-of-school provision, and raises questions about how to conceptualize effectiveness. The authors consider perspectives on exclusion from other countries including the United States, and place exclusion from school in the broader context of social exclusion.

"Andy Miller's Teachers, Parents and Classroom Behaviour is the most useful, insightful and coherent account of understanding and managing behaviour in schools that I have read. It is also superbly written, making it a pleasure to read... if you buy only one book this year, then it should be this one." Educational Psychology in Practice "This elegantly crafted book contains thought-provoking implications for all branches of applied psychology, as well as educationists and policy makers... With an increasing focus in education on evidence-based practice, this book will be a valuable resource for practicing and trainee teachers and educational psychologists... [It] offers an extremely timely contribution to current developments in education."The Psychologist "I found the book fascinating and it has led me to think differently in a variety of situations... It has also impacted my views on the school ethos and teacher relationships. I will be recommending this book to members of the senior management team and staff who work with pupils with behavioural problems." Young Minds Magazine 68/2004 The behaviour of students in schools is a matter of great concern. Legislation, media coverage and 'test cases' are flooding into the public consciousness at an increasing pace. The relative responsibility of teachers and parents is a particularly prominent and contentious issue. This book examines the reasons why strong statements of mutual recrimination and blame often occur in this area, before looking at policies and practices which are co-operative, preventive and proactive in nature. But this is not solely another book of tips and techniques. In addition to describing strategies with a proven evidence base, it also demonstrates, within a coherent framework, how and why these approaches achieve their aims. This book provides an in-depth understanding of key psychological factors for those in schools struggling in this vexed and pressing area and for that widening group of professionals charged with working in partnership to bring about demonstrable change.

The authors of this text suggest that teachers need to be able to cope with pupil behaviour before thay can even begin to deliver the National Curriculum. Often classes contain both statemented children those offcially recognize as having behavioural problems and unstatemented but difficult children. Teachers have few strategies to deal with the kind of behaviour that these children present as little, if any, of their training is allotted to classroom and child management.; The authors aim to raise awareness of behavioural needs in the classroom and avoid exclusions. They do this by encouraging school staff to work together to develop policies which will encourage good behaviour.
