The report draws on the typical factors used by schools to establish effective behaviour systems, stressing the importance of accountability and the key role governors play in supporting an effective school culture.
The review made the following six recommendations for school leaders:
designing the culture which is supportive of good conduct
creating a vision of the school culture which is commonly understood
making behaviour a whole school focus
developing social norms which encourage good behaviour
communicating that culture to the school by explaining and promoting its shared values
ensuring that the leadership team is loyal and well-supported to perform their roles.
The government welcomed the review in a letter from Secretary of State for Education, Justine Greening. The letter confirmed that the government would be taking a number of measures to give school leaders the knowledge and skills they need to deal with bad behaviour.
