Behaviour and Safety: Key Trends and Challenges

We recognise that promoting positive behaviour and ensuring pupil welfare is essential for school success. Through conversations with 400,000 school staff, pupils, and parents, we've crafted a comprehensive snapshot of the national education landscape, with a specific focus on pupil behaviour, wellbeing, and safety.

With these insights, as trust and school leaders you can:

  • Evaluate current safeguarding policies and practices
  • Inform your behaviour management strategies
  • Proactively identify areas to improve pupil behaviour, wellbeing and safety

In the 2023/2024 school year, we published two essential and timely reports on Pupil Behaviour and Safety and Pupil Wellbeing.

Pupil behaviour is a topic of growing importance, as student absence and incidents of poor behaviour frequently headline the news.

Our new research on pupil behaviour and safety presents a comprehensive analysis of the views of staff, pupils, parents, and school leaders. Alarmingly, we found that feelings of safety have declined by almost 10% in the last two years alone. Exploring feedback from a large and diverse pool of stakeholders, this report is packed with many more eye-opening insights on behaviour management, classroom disruption, safety, and bullying.

Key learnings discussed in the report include:

  • Behaviour Management: Staff report finding it difficult to get support with behaviour issues;
  • Classroom Disruption: Around 40% of both staff and pupils report regular disruptions to lessons;
  • Safety and Bullying: Pupil behaviour is a major factor for staff considering resignation;
  • Changes in Behaviour Over Time: Feelings of safety have declined over the past three years.

This report is an essential read for anyone looking to review and strengthen their school's behaviour management strategies.
