A behaviour expert helps an NQT with using sanctions Sue Cowley reflects on a day?s filming at Welford Primary with NQT Chris Farnen?s Y5 class of thirty mixed ability pupils. In this video Sue discusses the sorts of sanctions Chris uses to manage his pupils? behaviour. His school has a well-worked out behaviour policy with a gradation of sanctions beginning with a verbal warning, though Chris is reluctant to use the ultimate sanction of sending a pupil to another class, preferring to deal with any problem himself. Forfeiting break times and lunchtimes is the strategy Chris uses most often, and we see him dealing with a particular pupil who hasn?t completed the writing task he has set.
