Behaviour - How do I get pupils to behave?

30th January 2009 at 00:00

How do I get pupils to behave? It's a question that every teacher asks themselves, whether they are new to the job or an experienced old hand.

In this TES Essential Guide, Tom Bennett, head of religious studies and philosophy at Raine's Foundation School in Bethnal Green, east London, offers advice on tackling everything from low-level disruption to the chair throwers.

The guide looks too at what inspectors really think about bad behaviour and where you stand in the law.
