A conference on behaviour for primary and secondary school leaders and teachers.

The conference will explore the strategies and ethos of good behaviour and how it’s embedded across the school.  Sam will explore how he has achieved this in his all-through school.  The session will also include the input from two Shropshire schools who achieved ‘Outstanding’ for behaviour and attitudes in their most recent Ofsted inspection. 

Sam Strickland is the Principal of a large all-through school and has helped to guide its GCSE results from the bottom 20% nationally to the top 20% and A Level outcomes to the top 5% nationally. Sam began his teaching career as a History teacher in Bedfordshire having completed his PGCE in secondary history at the University of Cambridge under Christine Counsell. His career quickly accelerated and he became Head of History and Classics. He then moved on to become a Lead Professional and worked for a SCITT Consortium. During his time as an Assistant Head teacher, he had responsibility for the Sixth Form and led a Post 16 consortium arrangement. Sam also served as a Vice Principal, where he directly oversaw student care, the Sixth Form, the curriculum and served as the safeguarding lead for an entire trust. Sam has served as an Associate Principal, with GCSE and A Level results under his tenure receiving commendation from the DFE, Nick Gibb and the SSAT. The organiser of ResearchED Northampton and author of Education Exposed, Education Exposed 2, The Behaviour Manual, They Don’t Behave For Me and Is Leadership A Race?, he is a leading voice in the current conversation in education. He has had educational resources and research published, he regularly delivers courses and keynotes nationally and he has served as a lead facilitator for a variety of NPQs.

  • Have an opportunity to reflect on current policy and processes in response to behaviours of concern and how these could be developed.
  • Explore different models of behaviour management.
  • Understand the key steps to embedding a culture of good behaviour.
