Discussion Programme: Behaviour



This programme examines the challenges facing behaviour management policy in primary schools, the role of extrinsic versus intrinsic rewards, and discusses how to achieve long-term improvements in children's behaviour.

Discussion by a panel analyses many of the issues raised in the preceding three programmes. Participating are Eileen Ross, headteacher of Herbert Morrison Primary School in south London, Nicky Rosewell, headteacher of Grange Middle School in Harrow, Professor Andy Miller, who trains educational psychologists at Nottingham University and Giles Barrow, an educational consultant and independent trainer.

The panel reflect on the preceding programmes in the series:

  • Transactional Analysis, an approach based on developing children's emotional literacy
  • Challenging Children, where an assertive discipline-style system of happy and sad faces is employed
  • Head to Head, in which Eileen and Nicky take a critical look inside each other's schools

Themes discussed include:

  • Extrinsic versus intrinsic rewards
  • Developing emotional literacy
  • Is assertive discipline effective?
