Behaviour and discipline in schools

The management of pupil behaviour has always been and will always be a challenging aspect of any school leader's role. The duality of rewarding good behaviour and dealing with unacceptable behaviour sets a high bar for everyone charged with keeping children safe in education.

This guide provides both the legal and the pragmatic framework for managing behaviour and exercising discipline in schools and covers the practice of setting detentions, confiscation, the power to use reasonable force, isolation rooms, confinement, restriction, restraint and the use of force.
