Rewarding whole classes when working towards helping a child with significant disruptive behaviour

In some extreme incidents, the inappropriate behaviour of a child may have a detrimental effect on a whole class. It is really important that the class’s encouragement and support is rewarded i.e. when the disruptive child has a positive lesson / day/ week etc. the rest of the children are praised and rewarded for their help. This can be done in a number of ways: Whole-class reward - by asking Head / Deputy or Assistant Heads to come to congratulate the class, hand out stickers etc.
