Working together for good behaviour in schools: Information for parents and carers

Guidance

importantThumbnail of Working together for good behaviour in schools: Information for parents and carersThis product is created by DCSF

Good behaviour and strong discipline go hand in hand with effective teaching and learning. Teachers cannot teach and pupils cannot learn effectively in classes disrupted by poor behaviour.

Schools help to develop and encourage good behaviour. They also have strong legal powers to deal with poor behaviour where necessary.

This leaflet sets out the powers that schools have in relation to children’s behaviour, every parent’s responsibility for ensuring the good behaviour of their children, and what parents can expect from the school.
