Every teacher has a plethora of strategies to manage behaviour and create a safe an calm learning environment.  But for a small minority the usual strategies just don't work and the pupils end up in a escalating cycle of punishment, usually resulting in exclusion. New research is showing that there are alternatives to the systems of reward and punishment in most schools that are more effective for these pupils, but senior leaders are often reluctant to be the first adopters.  Dr Laura Oxley talks about her research into this area, the alternative systems and the barriers that face schools in being early adopters.  To find out more about her work please do visit Pedagogies of Punishment
