George Head explores the issues surrounding young people experiencing social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) and suggests teaching strategies that, in targeting such children work to the benefit of all at school. Furthermore, the book argues that, within a context of inclusion, provision for pupils regarded as belonging to the category requires to be refocused onto their learning rather than their behaviour. The focus of educational policy has become increasingly rights based and conflicts arise from, for example, the right of children with SEBD to be taught alongside their peers as against the right of the majority of pupils to learn without the disruption caused by inappropriate behaviour. Through a critical examination of theories of behaviour and learning, recent policy and research, the book argues that traditional approaches that focus on young people's behaviour have been inadequate and have led to the marginalisation of children and their teachers. These traditional approaches have led to the construction of pupil and teacher identities that are based on personal and professional deficit thus reinforcing views that segregated provision is the most appropriate educational context for this group. Instead, the author argues that a shift in practice that is posited on optimistic theories of behaviour and adopts a focus on learning rather than behaviour will help create the identities of effective learner and teacher that will enhance the educational experience of all young learners in schools. Intended as a textbook for student teachers and a reference for those involved in teaching young people with social, emotional or behavioural difficulties this analysis will appeal wherever schools grapple with these problems.

How can we create effective partnerships between home, school and the community? How can the relationships and communication between families and school be strengthened? How can families help schools to improve behaviour in their children, both at home and at school? Using a tried and tested framework that has been successfully implemented throughout a wide variety of very different schools and settings, ‘Family Values’ is a Scheme which engages and empowers families to work in close collaboration with schools and organisations, and which results in long-term improvements in behaviour, communication, pupil achievement and relationships. The ‘Family Values’ Scheme has been proven to: Help pupils to be more academically diligent Help schools to assume a calmer, more peaceful ambience Forge better pupil-teacher relationships Improve Pupil and teacher wellbeing Help parents to be more engaged with the school Improve children’s literacy, behaviour and attendance Provide head teachers and their staff with an effective whole-school strategy. The authors’ award-winning ‘Family Values’ Scheme is underpinned by sound theoretical principles, and they show here how it has been successfully put into practice through case studies in real school settings. The book explores how the Scheme promotes social, emotional and family system theories, and, in linking effectively to SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning), the Scheme compliments existing personal and social education programmes in all schools. Showing schools and organisations how to create effective partnerships with families and the community in a fun, exciting and sustainable way, Better Behaviour through Home-School Relations will be of huge benefit to all school staff, as well as local authorities, support groups, parents, charities and services.

Behaviour remains a huge issue of concern at all levels of education. This book draws together research and practice to uncover the complexities of improving behaviour and attendance in school and offers a range of practical solutions aimed at tackling behavioural issues and its prevention for schools, teachers, non-teaching staff, and those working to support them in Local Authorities. It considers current concerns relating to the behaviour of children and young people, the theoretical underpinnings of possible approaches to improving behaviour and attendance, as well as what we know about the causes of disaffection. In exploring ways that behaviour and attendance can be improved, the authors examine a range of perspectives including school management and whole school policies, and behaviour in and around the school, in the classroom, and of individual pupils, particularly those at risk of exclusion from school. It discusses the work of Behaviour and Educational Support Teams, teacher coaches, learning mentors and nurture groups as ways of supporting children and young people, particularly those identified as being 'at risk'. It also outlines ways of improving relationships between the school and home, as well as the ways that parents can be supported to assist in changing their children's behaviour and attendance. Alternatives to exclusion and new curricula are discussed in relation to their success in maintaining students in education. The final chapters focus on attendance and what can be done to improve it in the general school population and those students who are persistent absentees. Throughout the book case studies are used to illustrate examples of good practice and the impact on children, parents and teachers. The book concludes with an overview of key issues emerging for practice.
