Behaviour in Schools: Latest Developments & Learning from Good Practice

Confirmed speakers: 

  • Dan Owen, HMI, Ofsted
  • John d’Abbro, Headteacher, New Rush Hall 
  • Alison Colwell, Principal, The Ebbsfleet Academy 
  • Neville Beischer, Headteacher, Wright Robinson College 
  • Rachel May Penman, Inclusion Manager, Westfield Community School  
  • Alan Barham, Former Headteacher & Education Consultant (event chair)


Ofsted’s draft new inspection framework makes clear its view that “if behaviour is not managed effectively and learners are not instilled with positive attitudes to learning, nothing much will be learned”. Consequently, and in response to parent feedback, it plans to introduce a separate new “behaviour & attitudes” judgement. With the new framework set to be introduced from September, schools should be acting now to make sure their approach is up to scratch.

Join Westminster Briefing on 13 March for an up to date brief on managing behaviour in schools. We will examine the latest policy developments, Ofsted’s plans for behaviour in the new inspection framework, and actions leading schools are already taking.  

Key issues to be addressed include: 

  • Behaviour and the new Ofsted Inspection Framework 
  • A new "behaviour & attitudes" judgement and how performance will be measured 
  • Internally collecting and recording behaviour data 
  • Evidencing behaviour performance to parents/perspective parents 
  • Guidance on developing a school behaviour policy 
  • Lessons from the Bennet Review: commonly found features of successful schools 
  • Individual case study examples of success

The event:

The morning session will focus on the latest policy and inspection developments, specifically Ofsted’s plan for a separate new “behaviour & attitudes” judgement. 
The afternoon session will be an opportunity to learn from existing good practice demonstrated by leading schools. 

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
