'[Phil Beadle] refuses to accept students' backgrounds as an excuse for underachievement'. - Evening Standard Preparing to work in a tough school can be a nerve-wracking experience. Will there be gangs? What if none of the students do their homework? How will you know what to do if faced with a physical threat? Phil Beadle and John Murphy have spent their school careers transforming behaviour in the most challenging and economically-deprived environments. In this book, they set out the 7 keys to successful behaviour management, through innovative approaches to teaching and learning. Beginning with understanding the root causes of challenging behaviour and then approaching the students' behaviour and learning in a positive, but firm way, Phil and John get results by entrenching high expectations, respect and integrity. This tried-and-tested approach to effective classroom practice in challenging environments applies equally on a whole-school level, and is essential reading for anyone preparing to work in a challenging school or college or with excluded students.
