Implement agreed behaviour management strategies

Performance criteria P5 Regularly remind pupils of the school’s code of conduct
I regularly remind children of the school's code of conduct, for example, walking down the corridor, not running, being sensible in the toilets, putting their hand up instead of shouting out, listening when other people are talking, being respectful of each others feelings.

P6 Take immediate action to deal with any bullying, harassment or oppressive behaviour in accordance with your role and responsibilities

If I witness a child showing oppressive behaviour, or a child tells me that this has just happened to them, I take immediate action in line with my role and responsibilities. I ask each child to tell me what happened and listen carefully to each side. I then ask the child displaying the negative behaviour to consider what they have done wrong and how they can go about putting things right. I remind them of the schools code of conduct and advise them not to act that way again. If the incident was a serious or an ongoing problem, then I would inform the child's teacher at an appropriate moment so that this message can be reinforced.

P7 Recognise and respond appropriately to risks to yourself and/or others during episodes of challenging behaviour
Recently, I was supervising a girl in the nurture room who has behavioural difficulties, as well as some other children. I recognised that she was becoming particularly agitated, and this prompted me to respond by asking another child in the room to fetch the member of staff who usually works with this child. Shortly afterwards the child left the room and starting barging her way along the corridor. My college arrived at that moment and she was able to calm her down and take her back into the nurture room.

P8 Refer incidents of inappropriate behaviour outside your area of responsibility to the relevant staff member for action
When I witness inappropriate behaviour that I am unable to deal with, I always refer this to the relevant member of staff in an appropriate moment, especially if this is a serious or an ongoing issue, for example, a child swearing at a member of the dinner staff.

P9 Contribute to reviews of behaviour, including bullying, attendance and the effectiveness of rewards and sanctions, as relevant to your role
When I am working with groups of children, I always feedback at an appropriate moment to the teacher on aspects of the sessions I undertake eg their level of participation, understanding, and behaviour. Sometimes I have to use sanctions with certain children who display challenging behaviour, eg writing a sad face on the board next to a child's name. I am able to report back to staff about whether or not the child responded to this sanction so that they know whether or not to use that method themselves if the child misbehaves again.

P10 Provide clear and considered feedback on the effectiveness of behaviour management strategies
I am able to report back to staff in a clear and considered way about the effectiveness of behaviour management strategies, eg sending them out of the session back to their classroom if they misbehave, or rewarding them with a five minute play outside when they have finished their work. Staff will then know what strategies to use themselves should the situation arise again.
