Classroom control


One of the most important parts of teaching, regardless of if you are a supply teacher or permanent, is being able to keep control of a classroom. If you lose control of the classroom, no one will learn anything and you will probably feel stressed and lose a little of your confidence.

Many teachers say that classroom control comes with experience and that as you progress through your teaching career you find ways to manage pupil’s behaviour. This is correct, but for newly qualified teachers there are some hints and tips that can help you manage any class.

When first entering a classroom you need to establish the ground rules straight away. You should ensure that all pupils understand the level of behaviour you expect and what will happen if that is not met.

Many teachers say it is better to start off quite strict and then ease off a bit as the children get to know you and you them as by then you will have already set the standard of behaviour that you are looking for.
