When the Adults Change, Everything Changes: Seismic shifts in school behaviour
About this deal
Narrated by Paul Dix himself, this audiobook is suitable for teachers and school leaders – in any setting – who are looking to upgrade their approach to school behaviour. Dix has given me lots of questions and starting points to think about when planning our behaviour management. For example, how do we identify children who go over and above? I will also return to his useful tips, for example the '30 second script' - a formal one-to-one intervention for poor behavior in class that lasts no longer than 30 seconds. Through his writing, Paul brings a refreshing approach to the issues facing educators today with a mixture of hard-hitting questioning that will get you squirming about some of your own practice combined with fantastic, practical solutions that can be rolled out with ease for the benefit of all. Be prepared to face the odd expletive -¦ while the injections of humour will have you laughing out loud on the train!

It's true to say that as a whole staff we're at the beginning of our journey, but in terms of whole school impact it has already been hugely beneficial in terms of giving staff more confidence, (especially support staff), giving children a vocabulary to use for behaviour, reducing the amount of expensive time senior staff are spending dealing with incidents and enhancing the school's positive ethos.
When the adults change, everything changes: Seismic shifts in school behaviour by Paul Dix
Children have responded extremely positively to the new rules we've introduced: ready, respectful, safe. They're enjoying thinking about how any old “rules” we had, which were hardly written down or formalised, can be incorporated into these three words. They talk about their own behaviour and the effect it has on others in these terms. Children and staff have a shared language.
