South West Behaviour Conference: Behind the Behaviour – Monday 13 November 2017

Keynote Presentations

Behind the Behaviour – How Behaviour Problems Mask Mental and Emotional Health Problems – Nina Jackson, Associate Director, Independent Thinking.

All Behaviour is the Right Behaviour – Jarlath O’Brien, Director for Schools at the Eden Academy Trust.


Standards of behaviour remain a significant challenge for many schools and the number of exclusions in the South West shows the upward trend which mirrors the national picture. As clarified in the government’s independent review into behaviour in schools earlier in 2017, we now have evidence to show that the biggest positive impact on managing behaviour is to create a culture that maximises the learning and experience of all pupils. Fundamental to this is the ability to see beyond the behaviour and to understand the root causes.

This conference will get to grips with what works and what doesn’t by providing best practice case studies, proven strategies and tried and tested techniques that you can take straight back into your school.
