Introduction

TDA 2.9 - Support children and young people's positive behaviour Unit 1.1 Describe the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people's behaviour. St Mary's school has and uses many different ways of promoting and encouraging good behaviour. In the KS1 class I work in they have a display on the class wall of "what makes a good class". This is a list, which goes through different things to make a good class by demonstrating behaviour in a "recipe" style list for example it says "mix in 30 children" and "sprinkle in good manners". The teacher will remind the class of this "recipe" if ever behaviour is not up to standard. The school does not tolerate bullying and operates a "Buddy bus stop" every playtime. Children from a couple of the classes are on a rota. They have to wear a sash and look out for anyone that might not have anyone to play with. ...read more.

The behaviour of teachers/volunteers/teaching assistants is also monitored closely and they have set procedures to follow on how to deal with challenging behaviour, how they should behave around their pupils and what to do in certain situations. Unit 1.2 Describe with examples the importance of all staff consistently and fairly applying boundaries and rules for children and young people's behaviour in accordance with the policies and procedures of the setting. It is important that staff apply the same rules and boundaries to all children within their age group/class so that all children are treated fairly and know what is expected of them. It would be impossible to have a different rule for each child because each child would then behave in its own way and it would be impossible to control a class of 30 children. Each rule or boundary needs to be age appropriate for example a class of 7-8 year olds would have different rules and boundaries compared to a class of 2-3 year olds because their understandings are so different. ...read more.

Conclusion

The teacher has put it up on the wall in the words that the children used. When there is a little set back in class the teacher gets the class to read that particular part of the recipe to remind the children of what they decided makes a good class. Although this is suitable for these KS1 children it would be too immature for KS2 children and too mature for Foundation stage children. This is why age appropriate rules and boundaries are very important. In the Foundation stage they have clouds for their behaviour. All children start the day on the happy cloud, then depending on their behaviour they either remain on the happy cloud or could move to the "thinking cloud" or further still the "sad cloud". By this age they understand what happy and sad means and are just starting to learn the understanding of thinking about what they have done and why they should not have done it. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

A very good descriptive essay that contains some excellent examples of behaviour practise in a school setting.

The writer could extend the second half of the essay by reading the school policy and discussing it a little further. This would allow discussion of how the examples demonstrate the policy in action.
