Slides 1-4 = Intro to Sarah Everard and what has been happening in the news and on social media about her death and public sexual harassment. Slides 5-7 = Information, statistics and a video all about public sexual harassment. Please note that you will want to look at the video first as it may not be suitable for all age groups. Slides 8-12 = How can we tackle PSH and what can we do in school in ensure it does not happen in the school building. You will want to change one or two things on these slides to ensure it is in line with your school policy.

This is a 3 part CPD all about behaviour management that I have delivered to previous staff, NQT’s and PGCE / Teach first teachers. It has always gone down really well and received lots of positive praise and comments. I have also been asked to deliver this across the school’s trust. The CPD session is split into 3 sessions (two shorter and one longer) however it can easily be adapted to fit into one session or extended into 4 sessions that are all shorter. Session 1 - This is a shorter session (around 30mins) all about staff self reflections and breaking down beahviour management into 3 key stages along with some strategies. It also introduces a case study of a teacher (from a documentary) and some discussions surrounding his behaviour management strategies. The session ends with some reflections on what they can do / try in their lessons. Session 2 - This is the longer session (around 45mins-1hour) that continues to look at the case study with lots of discussions as progress is made. It also goes through some key strategies and top tips along with more reflections. Session 3 - Another shorter session (30mins) which is all scenario based linking to the schools behaviour management policy. I have taken out the policy of my school for you to insert your own schools policy. Again there is lots of chance for discussion and reflections.

This worked fantastically well as a live presentation on parents evening but would equally work as a virtual presentation too.
