Getting to the Heart of Discipline in Schools

10th November 2017, London


A joint conference with Independent Thinking and Teachology  


This is a conference that gets to grips with what works and what doesn’t when it comes to embedding discipline amongst learners.

A must-see summary and case study exploration of the fundamental foundations of effective behaviour management.

Controlling some classes is like herding cats.This event is a step-through guide to instilling a sense of accountability for behaviour in students. Whether its cajoling the disinterested and disaffected students, ruling the rowdy, or cooling off the class clown, the basis for control is the same: engaging lessons, firm standards and consequences, and a deeply entrenched sense that there is a real purpose to gaining an education.


Who should attend: SMTs, Middle Leaders, Pastoral, Teachers, Counsellors

What is Good Behaviour? Debunking the Myths, Uncovering Some Truths - Jim Roberson

Jim believes that school should be the place where you learn all you need to learn to succeed in life, whatever form that success may take. Most importantly, in his view, you have to learn discipline. For Jim, behaviour is the B-word and he forbids mention of it. Discipline, on the other hand, is neatly described not as something others do to you to get you to behave nor even as something you do to yourself, but rather as what you do for yourself.
