The School Climate Control Conference (Video)

The School Climate Control Conference (Video)

This 90 minute video covers all the components that are necessary to provide a positive school and classroom climate. I reference the bully proof classroom app in the conference, this is no longer available. The bpconlineacademy is no longer available as well. The conference is ideal for a whole school in-service and can be used to acquire professional development hours. A great resource.

Christmas

Christmas

Why not praise your students with this Christmas “thank you” colouring certificate? A high quality image that can’t be printed onto paper or thin card and handed to deserving students in the last week of term. They can either take it home to colour or do it in school as an end of term activity.
