In this episode, we are joined by Behaviour and Education Expert Adele Bates. Adele empowers school leaders and teachers to support pupils with behavioural needs and SEMH to thrive within their education. She’s an International Keynote Speaker, a featured Expert on ‘Teenagers and Behaviour’ for BBC Radio 4, the Author of ‘Miss, I don't Give A Sh*t- Engaging with Challenging Behaviour in Schools,’ and is a fully funded International Researcher in Finland, the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica on Behaviour & Inclusion, alongside 20 years of teaching experience!
Adele: “I’ve had juice poured on my head, been whacked by a skateboard – and have taught a year 7 pupil who has experienced severe trauma, how to read their first ever word…”
In this episode we discuss engaging with challenging behaviour and why bridging the gap between alternative provision and mainstream schools is so important.
Here are some of the questions I asked Adele:
