Why consistency matters and how internal bias can influence teacher approaches.

This session looks at the importance of both whole school consistency and also at how individual teachers can be internally consistent. It explores the kind of reactions that teachers might have to individual learners, and how to overcome those reactions to ensure that everyone is treated equitably. The session also looks at practical options for teachers to use in making reasonable adjustments and providing additional behaviour support to children who struggle with self-regulation.

This module is suitable for Teachers, Early Career Teachers, ECT Mentors, Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants, Senior Leaders supporting staff with behaviour.
