This free resource will help schools to take a fresh look at their behaviour management and revise their approaches to punishment

Behaviour management: Reflections on punishment

Written by Belinda Hopkins

This resource poses four key questions that will help schools implement a restorative behaviour management approach. Included are scenarios that depict teachers’ responses to pupils’ undesirable actions and the pupils’ responses. These examples will allow schools to reflect on the effectiveness of their current behaviour mangement or punishment systems.

Conflict between pupils is often identified by adults as a discipline issue requiring a punitive response. It is likely then that any discussion about using mediation and other restorative approaches to resolve conflicts will instigate a conversation about punishment.

This resource will help you kick-start this process!
