What questions does this pack have the answers to?

Have you conducted a behaviour and attitudes audit before? Wondering where to begin or wanting to ensure you cover all areas of behaviour and attitudes as outlined in the Education Inspection Framework (EIF)? 

A behaviour and attitudes audit involves a comprehensive review of the school’s policies and procedures related to pupil behaviour and attitudes, as well as an examination of the attitudes and behaviours of pupils themselves.

It provides a comprehensive evaluation of the school’s educational practices, identifies areas for improvement, and establishes a clear roadmap for continuous improvement. Gather the views from all stakeholders, including staff, pupils, parents, carers and governors, as well as evaluate your climate, culture and ethos, staff development, pupil motivation, learning environment and attendance.  

If completed honestly, conducting an audit in this area can be a useful tool while collecting evidence from a variety of sources, so you can gain a comprehensive understanding of the behaviour and attitudes in your setting.
