Angry Learners and Restorative Cultures for Secondary Staff
- Join Ollie Frith for a practical, innovative, and transformative training session on anger and restorative Practice
- Open to all secondary staff
How do you explain anger to the children? Is your approach consistent? Do you have a common understanding of anger? Do all your colleagues explain anger in the same way? Is there a common language adopted by staff and students?
Ollie will show you how to work with angry learners, how to adopt innovative approaches for the most difficult behaviours and develop more productive interventions.
What happens after the anger is also critical. Shift the culture of your classroom, department, or school towards truly restorative practice. Learn how some schools have left pure punishment behind and accelerated improvements in behaviour.
