At Manor Primary School, Year 5 class teacher, Carol Hardwicke, has found a number of strategies that help her statemented ADHD pupils but have also proved useful with the rest of the class, in ‘Primary Behaviour’.
Consistent and clear boundaries are important - putting More…rules in place at the start of the year and ensuring all staff stick to them. Also, chunking lessons and keeping them active helps.
Other ideas include having an un-cluttered classroom, minimal and well-organised displays. Judicious use of rewards for basic good behaviour motivates SEN pupils.
