Ways to reduce school exclusion through more effective systems and strategies to manage demanding, difficult and disruptive behaviour.

Presented by Fintan O’Regan.

Exclusion is on the rise again. The number of permanent exclusions across state funded Primary, Secondary and Special schools has increased from 5,795 in 2014/15 to 6,685 in 2015/16 while the number of fixed rate exclusions from state funded Primary, Secondary and Special schools has increased from 302,975 in 2014/15 to 339,360 in 2015/16.

In this presentation we will consider the issues around exclusion including current policies and procedures and also ways to reduce school exclusion through more effective systems and strategies to manage demanding, difficult and disruptive behaviour

Issues to be discussed include

  • New school exclusions guidance and preventing school exclusions
  • Current research on school exclusions, the risk factors and the link with mental health
  • Tackling low level disruptive behaviour
  • Considering systems and pathways for successful transition from Primary to Secondary
  • Behaviour management strategies without using punitive sanctions
  • Making reasonable adjustments for students with additional needs
  • Strategies for engaging disengaged students and boosting attendance
  • Listening and developing Student voice mechanisms to challenge bullying, improve wellbeing, behaviour and raise attainment
  • Working with families to improve behaviour and develop resilience in students at risk.
