Developing good relationships and positive behaviour in the classroom is essential for creating the right environment for effective learning and teaching.
Where young people feel included, respected, safe and secure and when their achievements and contributions are valued and celebrated, they are more likely to develop self-confidence, resilience and positive views about themselves.
Within CfE all staff are expected to be proactive in promoting positive relationships and behaviour in the classroom.
There are specific experiences and outcomes in Health and Wellbeing which are the responsibility of all practitioners, who have a role in:
- establishing open, positive, supporting relationships across the community, where children and young people will feel that they’re listened to, and where they feel secure in their ability to discuss sensitive aspects of their lives;
- promoting a climate in which children and young people feel safe and secure;
- modelling behaviour which promotes health and wellbeing and encouraging it in others;
- using learning and teaching methodologies which promote effective learning;
- being sensitive and responsive to the wellbeing of each child and young person.
