Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has made the below statement, welcomes Ofsted’s plans to help the Department tackle low level bad behaviour in schools.
Secretary of State for Education Gavin Williamson said:
“A single instance of bad behaviour, whether it’s messing around with a mobile or talking over the teacher, can disrupt learning for every child in a class. That’s why I’m keen that we empower teachers to deal with low level bad behaviour and this move from Ofsted helps us do just that.
“We recently announced a £10 million investment to establish behaviour hubs so that schools with a track record of effectively managing pupils’ behaviour can share what works with schools that need it. This will help teachers stay in control of the classroom and while preventing behaviour issues from escalating and avoiding fixed term exclusions.”
