Inappropriate Behaviour Management

Inappropriate behaviour management refers to an approach to dealing with pupils that is counterproductive to learning and/or maintaining a positive learning environment in the school. It reflects poor judgment or limited behaviour management skills. It is not abuse or misconduct as defined by this policy. It must be treated by supervisors as any personnel issue which requires performance management.

Examples of Inappropriate Behaviour Management
  • personal attacks on pupils' characters rather than dealing with their behaviour;
  • continuous use of sarcasm;
  • undue, non-constructive criticism in dealing with pupils; and
  • habitual uncontrolled temper.
Please note that repeated Inappropriate Behaviour Management may become Misconduct if a supervisor has addressed it with the employee and the behaviour has not been corrected.
