A calm classroom is something every teacher strives for. With many schools now shifting away from classroom management systems based around behavioural principles and considering instead, the use of relational approaches to managing behaviour, many benefits are being observed to having a calm classroom.
Reduced stress – a calmer classroom leads to less stress for the teacher.
Boosted relationships - a less stressed teacher leads to improved teacher-pupil relationships.
Increased learning – with the quality of relationships improved, pupils are able to take greater risks with their learning, knowing that they have the support of the teacher should anything go wrong.
