New research on pupil behaviour shows that while most teachers’ views are increasingly positive, one in four is unhappy with standards in their school. Many teachers believe that poor behaviour is driving their colleagues out of the profession, the Huffington Post reports.
The latest report into pupil behaviour from the National Foundation for Educational Research found that although 76% of the 1600 teachers surveyed described behaviour as ‘good’ or ‘very good’, 6% overall believe that it is poor or very poor – 5% in primary schools but 8% in secondaries. And 60% of teachers believed bad behaviour drove teachers away from the classroom.
Just over a fifth of maintained schools inspected by Ofsted between January and March this year were rated just ‘satisfactory’ or ‘inadequate’ over pupil behaviour and safety.
