1.2 It is important for all staff to be consistent when supervising pupil’s behaviour and it is important for children to have boundaries that they can understand and which are frequently reinforced by adults. It is important that it is made clear to children how they are expected to behave, children need to be explained rules and boundaries and why they are important, when children are unaware of how they are expected to behave or if adults are giving them conflicting messages children will become confused and upset and may act out disapprovingly and will find it difficult to know how to behave next time. Although all children are most likely to test boundaries for behaviour, it is imperative for staff to be consistent with their response and as this will make children realize they are met with the same response each time they will be less likely to repeat it.
