Creating Positive Behaviour Cultures in Schools Conference

Following years of debate around the ‘behaviour crisis’, changes to guidance on behaviour in schools as well as the suspension and permanent exclusion guidance make it clear that behaviour in schools is a priority for the 2022/23 academic year. With figures released in November 2022 showing an increase in permanent exclusions, as well as a sharp increase in the number of suspensions, there is work still to be done.
